    Default Is this Phal Cornu-Cervi?

    Hi All,

    I've acquired this plant from seedling and was given another name for it. It seems to be similar to be Phal Cornu-Cervi. Can someone verify this for me? It seems very much bigger than the Cornu-Cervi that I've seen... Could it be 4n? Just a thought... Thanks alot

    Looks like a cornu-cervi but I'll leave the ID to the experts.

    This is a Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi orchid. If you want to grow this species better; then plant them in a medium like fir-bark and keep it in partial shade with intermediate-to-warm temperatures. You need to water once a week and keep the plant fairly moist, but not wet.

    Even though it looks like a Cornu cervi, beware there are many hybrids that look very similar that use Phal. mannii or its primary hybrids as the other parent, only a thorough look by an expert can prove this.
