    Talking noid Phal - white

    Here is a noid Phal that I picked up. The tag just said "Phalaenopsis." The flower is nearly 5 inches wide and mostly bright white. Anyone else have one of these with a name on it??? Thanks in advance.

    It is really pretty, Pedro. You may not ever get the 'correct' name of this phal since there are so many that look alike. You may have to name it yourself . Thanks for sharing it with us!

    Cheers,

    Check out photos of Phal amabilis. Compare the throat with the one you have. I can't tell from the angle of your shot if there is striping in there. The size would be right.

    Wow. The striping is dead on! I would guess that this is Phal. amabilis. I will tentatively call it that. Thank so much! I love this forum!!!
