Phalaenopsis-bellina-Fernbrook-JC/AOS-2021-08-24***SITF has determined after reviewing the challenge (July 2022) that based on the history of the Phalaenopsis bellina-violacea complex and some questionable attributes in color and form of this cultivar, it could possibly be a hybrid, since P. bellina and P. violacea were at one time considered the same species and there is no way to know if this plant is a pure P. bellina due to line breeding with parents that historically might have contained P. violacea which was considered synonymous.***
