Phalaenopsis violacea var. alba

I do not grow many Phalaenopsis: never have, with the exception of a couple species and one miniature hybrid.  This is one of the two species I am growing at present.  I purchased it as a seedling and it is blooming for the first time with two flower spikes.  I had hoped for slightly better flower form than this, but love the color and the scent.  It grows in moss and on a bathroom windowsill with a couple other Phalaenopsis and some Paphiopedilums.
