Amesiella is a genus of monopodial orchids endemic to the northern Philippines. ALL 3 species are found on the Island of Luzon. Plants are compact to miniature. Plants of this hybrid will begin to flower when the plants are 2” – 2½” across.  Inflorescences will be 2-5 flowered. Individual flowers will be 1¼” – 2” across. Sepals and petals will be pure white. The labellum will be white with or without a yellow halo in the throat. Plants will grow well in Phalaenopsis light levels, but need to be intermediate to cool. Plants like to be evenly moist but need a well-drained mix.  Plants are reportedly fertilizer sensitive. Mounting or small baskets are suggested.
