    Default White Phalaenopsis no other info

    This is the new Phalaenopsis I just got at my local supermarket. Of course there is no other information for it's name or otherwise. Does anyone know what this one is called?

    Default Another View....

    Here's another view of the same white phal....

    Yes I know there are tons of whites, I noticed when I did a search for that online I got pages and pages of information.

    Whatever it is, it is so pretty. The little whiskers that hang off the labelum are yellow and orange tiger striped with yellow coming all the way down the labellum. Most I find close to mine have white whiskers and the yellow goes only half way down the labellum.

    Hi Connie! Oh that's a pretty one! I especially like the intricacies of the labellum. Is this the window you were telling us about where you have room for a few more? oh so tempting!

    Yes that is the infamous, Orchid Corner, aka front window. I took my time choosing and the whiskers on the labellum were a big reason I chose this one. That and the fact the flowers are 4 1/2 inches across really cinched it for me. None of the others came close, it has five flowers yet to open, with a possible sixth on the tip and the entire plant is healthy and beautiful. Glad you all enjoyed it.

    I'm still trying to overcome the urge to go back and grab two more, there was another white with a violet labellum and a lovely pale purple phal. It's tough keeping myself from going and getting them. But i'm trying to only buy like two a season, so if i raise them right i'll have blooms coming all year round. It's hard though....lol...so many Phals, so little places to put them all! lol
