    Default Does anyone know the name of this Phalaenopsis - Moth orchid??

    Hi, I hope this is posted in the right place, i believe it is. I am new to orchids. My husband bought me the one pictured about a month ago and I loved it so much he has since bought me three more.

    My question is, does anyone happen to know the name of this one? I know it is a moth orchid, but the tag that came with it only says orchid. ---- Vendor information removed - see FAQs on Posting ----. I didn't even know they had other names until I received the other three and they had names (Blake, Gallo Spot, Tiger Head). I have searched and searched tons of sites and photo galleries and I haven't been able to spot one just like this where it was labeled with a name also. I would appreciate any help, it's not horrible if I don't find out the name, because I will still love it, but I thought it would be nice if I could find out.

    I have already learned so much and am so excited for all of my orchids to bloom. They are such beautiful flowers!

    All that can be said for sure hdgabs is that it is a phalaenopsis. There are so many hybrids that it would be almost impossible to get an accurate ID.

    We all have orchids without proper names attached to them. We call them NoID's.

    And ditto with Chris' comment. Too many hybrids to know exactly.

    I love my NOIDS just the same as my species and named hybrids. I usually give them a name myself. Welcome here.
