    Angry Phal. stuartiana..or schilleriana?

    Guys, I got this about a year ago as a small seedling.
    Since then, it's doubled in size and seems much more rigorous than my
    P. schilleriana 'Pink Butterfly'.
    It's clearly labeled as P. stuartiana..
    but the blooms look more like schilly to me.
    What do you think? Do you think this one could have been mislabled, or is there some other floral morphology that I'm overlooking..(I don't need another schilly.)

    Stumped,

    Clint

    Flower and leaves are both schilleriana and not stuartiana.

    Sorry for that - it's a real bummer!

    I think Jluie is right...

    Go here...

    and here...

    http://www.orchidspecies.com/phalstuartiana.htm

    and compare...

    I'm no phal expert, but it does look more like schilleriana
