    Default What kind of orchid do I have?

    I just bought my very first orchid and don't know what kind it is. The name on the stick in the pot is Otps. Fushang's Purple Gein x Fushang's. I think the first letter is an O, but it culd be a D... it's kind of faded. Any help would be appreciated. Help in growing tips, etc. Thanks!!

    Hi Paula,

    Your plant is a Doritaenopsis (Dtps). It's an intergeneric hybrid between Doritis and Phalaenopsis. Also would check wether you have a "Fushang's Purple Gein" or a ("Fusheng's Purple Gem" x "Fushang's (?)". A good way to check on plant names esp hybrids is to look them up in the Royal Horticultural Society's website.
