Maggs, thank you for the suggestion but our OS members are wary of IDing orchids, particularly in the Phal. Hybrids, because there are so many diffrent crosses it is really very difficult (oftimes) to be certain you have the correct name. If 2 or 3 of them have the same plant with the same flower then they will share the info. with you.
I think this is a good thing because if an orchid is Id incorrectly, and then that person hybridises it using that name, the error becomes more and more complicated.
