    It is definitely NOT tetraspis (IOSPE PHOTOS) Most likely a Phal hybrid... nice flower.

    Because it most likely is a hybrid, you may never know its name. For the most part general Phal care will work for this plant. You can go to AOS.org and download a care sheet for Phal. AOS | Phalaenopsis
