    Great show: thanks for sharing pics.

    Photo 1: I think it's an Arachnis. Interesting with its bright pink reverse
    Looks like a hybrid between Arachnis (probably flos-aeris) and Vandopsis lissochiloides (thus the purple on the back of the flower). I only know of Vandachnis Coronation, a hybrid of Vandopsis lissochiloides x Arachnis Maggie Oei. Maybe a new hybrid ...

    Gita, Cotabato and Davao share the same climate, warmest daily temperatures all year long would be about 32 to 33 degrees centigrade. Not exactly phal territory. There are species phals to be found in small gardens around town but big nurseries specializing in phals and its hybrids are a rarity here.

    Certainly does Ron. Sorry couldn't give you more details on its identity. It had no label. I was hopping from one booth to the next. So much to see. Would have bought it but could not think of a suitable space for it in my garden.
