    Default Phal Noid, ID anyone?

    Got this from my husband for Valentines day, she's a beaut. Just wish I knew some of the id's for my plants. Anyways, at first glance, it appears solid white, but get a little closer and you can see the inside of the lip blushes a pale yellow and is light speckled with a pink/purple. The 'forks' on the lip are also very long and curled back.I adore this new addition Can anyone help me with labeling it?

    I did a quick web search and found something that might be it:

    Phalaenopsis Timothy Christopher: Phal (Cassandra x amabilis)

    It is pretty, but will be very hard to identify correctly since there are so many white with yellow center phals on the market. Does the pot have any markings that might lead you to the source of the plant?

    Cheers,

    Very close, but I think maybe the Phal. Tinny White: Phal (Taisuco Atienyuki x Taisuco Kaaladian ) looks closer, less yellow and speckling in the middle, but the 'forks' on the lip are shorter, ans the petals are not quite that wide :/

    The plant itself had no tag whatsoever, not even labeled Phal.

    I think it probably has amabilis in its background.

    i think it's a secondry hybrid
    the first hybrid is amabillis X philippinensis and than a cross with somthing else, my guess aphrodite.

    Phalaenopsis species by alphabetical order.

    Thanks for the help I think Gidi might be right, I can't seem to find an exact match, so a secondary hybrid makes a lot of sense.

    Default amobalis

    I think it is P. amobolis or a cross of amabolis
