    Default Huh??

    Now I'm confused, I thought it was an Iwanagaara Apple Blossom... but it also looks like a Diaca Chantilly Lace ' Hildos CEL Dorado Splash X Diacm bicornutum. What's a Diaca????? Although I'm sorta new to the orchid game (compared to others), I don't think I've seen this classification yet.
    Here's a pic of my daughter's Apple blossom (not that great).

    Iwanagaara. Compare the throat and lip on yours to the picture of the Diaca. Also the shape/point of the sepals.

    The other thing is that they both have Diacrium bicornotum in their ancestry, hence the similarity. The Diaca has more of the pointy shape of this species and the pink edge throughout the labellum whilst in the Iwanagaara there is more of the white margin...
