    Default Phalaenopsis ID please

    Hi,
    I've posted this story along with my introduction, but it maybe wasn't the best place to put it, so here I go again. Thanks to Susan anyway for helping me with a part of the possible ID.
    I currently live in Thailand, bought some lovely orchids. Among these, there was an unidentified Phalaenopsis. I was guaranteed that it was a species, not a hybrid. As it turns out to be, as Susan so kindly pointed out, it is most certainly a hybrid, may it be a primary. I thought it was either pallens, reichenbachiana or inscriptiosinensis. According to the markings inscriptiosinensis should be one part of the hybrid, but the lip and shape of the flower do not conform to that specie. Does anyone here have an idea what the other parentage could be?

    Thanks in advance for the effort.
    Kind regards,
    Wouter

    Hi Ron,

    here goes, I hope you can help me.
    One parentage must be Phalaenopsis inscriptionsinensis or Phalaenopsis hieroglyphica, but the rest, no idea.

    Kind regards,
    Wouter

    Hi Connie and everyone else interested. I found out the cross, was able to talk to the lady of the nursery.
    The pollen parent is Phalaenopsis amboinensis, the mother is Phalaenopsis gigantea. Now that I know, it seems rather logical, especially for the shape of the flower.
    I'm happy to have this little baby in my collection.

    Kind regards,
    Wouter

    Hi Jonada,

    yes, that is basically what I did as well, even though the brother/vendor assured me it was a species, but he didn't know.
    Found out today he's been labeling some orchids wrongly as well, Acampe mixed with Gastrochilus. I understand they look alike, but come on, right?
    Anyway, it was sorted out today.
    Kind regards,
    Wouter
