    Default Potinara Ah Chung Yogo

    Look at the little bit of red at the tips of the petals - wow! Such vibrant colors make this a beautiful orchid.

    Thanks Amey. As this plant comes from Thailand I'm just following the name on the tag. I have been variously told that it is Ah Chung, Ahchung followed by Yogo or Yoyo or Yo Yo. According to one Thai catalogue it is the name you suggested and I think I'll use that. Someone even said that it is not a Potinara but a Slc.
