    You have a very nice collection of NoID Phals there, but I can't give you any encouragement in terms of identifying them. There are over 30 thousand registered Phals of the same general type as these, and many that are sold are unregistered hybrids besides. Your second and third one could easily be the same hybrid. There is often more variability than that within a cross. No one person has seen more than a fraction of the known hybrids in bloom, so no matter how much it "looks just like" something, there are hundreds of other hybrids it also "looks just like" that the person making the statement has never seen. If you have a partial tag or can contact a vendor, then it might be possible.

    I'm not an expert on naming orchids by any means but what it appears to me is that you have complex hybrids that will defy a name. They are given the general name of NOID = no id However they are beautiful orchids and am glad that you rescue them from the trash. They don't look like they should have been in the trash in the first place.
    I give my NOID names like rootless wonder and Tyrian so that I can identify them.

    Thanks everyone! I am enjoying them regardless of whether or not they can be identified. This may open the door for a non NOID ORCHID. let's see how I do with these. I have 3 I am pretty worried about......

    If you post pictures of the ones you worry about and ask questions then people here typically have some pretty solid advice to offer.

    One of the largest manufacturers of Phals for mass markets will not release the parentage of their plants and determining the name of a hybrid is kinda iffy. I suggest you just enjoy them .
