Phalaenopsis Tying Shin Sapphire


Phalaenopsis Tying Shin Sapphire (formerly: Doritaenopsis Tying Shin Sapphire) is an epiphytic growing, multi-generation orchid hybrid, a crossing between Phalaenopsis Tying Shin Moonlight (seed parent) and Phalaenopsis pulcherrima (pollen parent).

The showy, pure white Phalaenopsis Tying Shin Sapphire has been registered with the Royal Horticultural Society in the year 2009 by Tying Shin Orchids, an orchid nursery near Caotun in Taiwan, specialized in the development of Phalaenopsis hybrids. To create this stunning orchid flower, a lot of effort was needed and multiple Phalaenopsis species orchids has been involved.
These are: Phal. pulcherrima (formerly: Doritis pulcherrima), Phal. floresensis, Phal. micholitzii, Phal. venosa, Phal. amboinensis, Phal. amabilis, Phal. rimestadiana, Phal. lueddemanniana, Phal. aphrodite, Phal. fasciata, Phal. equestris, Phal. sanderiana, Phal. stuartiana, Phal. schilleriana and Phalaenopsis aphrodite subsp. formosana.

Inflorescences reach lengths up to about 25 cm and are packed with multiple flowers. Flowers get a size of about 4 cm in diameter. Phalaenopsis Tying Shin Sapphire requires an intermediate - warm, humid climate and is best cultivated in partial shade. Like most Phalaenopsis hybrids, this beautiful strain is considered as easy to care and can be recommended for orchid beginners.
