    Default Phal and Oncidium Orchid Names please

    A friend brought two flowers for me to see one is a phalaenopsis but she does not know the names. I took the phal flower and used it to pollinate one of my own "Chain Xen Diamond" whose flowers are huge and has a very long flower spike with about six right nowName:  CIMG0969a.jpg

    I love that spotted phal. I've got the same intergeneric. It was a Noid too, but people here say it is a Colmanara Wildcat 'Blood Ruby'. Can't believe she chopped the flowers off for a name. LOL

    She loves orchids but there are some she either misplaced the name tag or did not get one, her daughter had bought for her and someone stole about two or three of her phals a few weeks ago and sold them off for next to nothing, we pay about two to three hundred dollars (about sixty US)here for a phal, if we are lucky we may get one for one fifty( without flowers) so when we get one most times we cherish it, some people just buy them for the beautiful flowers but afterwards when it stops they never bother with them, or they leave the plant without water too long or with too much water

    Wow. That's quite a bit for most Phals here.
