It is a medium sized, hot growing epiphytic species with short stems enveloped by imbricating leaf bases and carrying a few, arcuate to pendant, elliptic-oblong, fleshy, obtuse leaves. The leaves are 30-46 cm long and are soft. On the upper side are silver gray and on the bottom are crimson.
Stuart's Phalaenopsis blooms in the winter and spring on a branching, to 3' (90 cm) long, arcuate to pendant inflorescence with ovate-cucullate bracts, that can carry up to 100, faintly fragrant flowers. Flowers are usually 5-10 cm in diameter, but their size is variable, because the larger number of flowers reduces their size. They are long-lasting, they have wide petals of the inner whorl with a delicate structure. The flowers are white to cream with a lip in a sulfur-yellow color. The lower half of the inner whorl and the trumpet-shaped petals have purple spots.
