    Default Need Pic of my Plant of the Month

    Hello all you wonderful people,

    Today, I received my second plant of the month from a large commercial orchid nursery. It's a huge Paph, must be at least six years old. I have tried Googling a pic to no avail, and would like to get a pic of it if anyone can help me.

    The name on the ID tag says:
    Paph. Lowii 'Toogoodoo' x Paph. Philippinesis 'Toodgoodoo'

    but I think there must be some misspelling.

    Can someone with more resources than I help me get a pic?

    Much thanks.

    Hello

    It's not Paph. Philippinesis but Paph. Philippinense and the best result I came up with is that your plant is probably a hybrid called Paph. Berenice.
    I might be wrong though

    Thanks everyone. While I do not consider myself and ID snob, I really do like to know the correct names of my orchids when possible.

    I still can not believe I received this; it's made my day!
