    Default ID help- very distinctive NOID (PHAL)

    Got this NOID phal yesterday. I usually don't bother trying to ID phal NIODs since there are so many of them, but this one is so distinctive I thought it might be possible. I know I have seen pics of ones like this, possibly with "orchid world" or somthing like it in the name.

    Anyone here have any ideas?

    PS-I like it even without a name!

    You may be thinking of Orchid World 'Joe'. The problem with id'ing noids...there are just so many crosses out there that are nearly identical. Phals with no tags around here get a fun name I make up for them. Other than genetic testing you may never know for certain...

    My grocery store actually has a bunch that look just like this! Was considering getting one with two spikes but they lacked a tag so I thought better of it.

    If you get enjoyment from it, that's the most important part. It is really pretty.

    It looks similar to this, but like everyone else has already replied, there's no way to know for sure. If you google "sogo david" there are many different variations.

    Since I found the picture on this site, I should give credit to the photographer. This is a picture Howard (Bikerdoc5968) posted in another thread.
