Default Phalaenopsis cornu cervi "Red"

Here's my Phal. cornu cervi "Red"

Pardon my ignorance but until now, I still don't know what's the difference between a "Red" and a var. chattaladae

Any kind soul care to explain to me

First time in bud.


Bloom taken at night


Bloom taken in the day.

It is very special! Is this a first bloom seedling or a meristemed plant?

Here's a link to phals.net.
Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi

They show several that are dark red like yours, but no explanation of var. chattaladae.

Your photos are very nice.

This is a first bloom seedling, if I'm not wrong it's a sibling cross as there were many different varieties in one batch. Some where normal cornu-cervis some looked like talibanii.

Personally I don't fancy clones, if the parent plant is virused, there would be 1000x virused progeny. This is what cloning technology failed, and also allow dishonest breeders to multiply their sick plant when the mother plant is dying from virus! So far for me, my Phal. speciosa C#1 is my only cloned plant

Thanks for the link, I've actually seen another website called chattaladae.com or something like that, perhaps you can google for it. After reading, I still don't understand the difference

This should be quite readily available in Malaysia, maybe you can get one of it. If I'm not wrong, Mr. Robert Ang have some sib crosses of very very RED cornu-cervis
