    Default Who Am I?

    Can anyone help a bit on this phal? The tag is not completely legible but here is what I can make out:
    P. _e_ _ e(or o)r Gold x P. Yu_ _na
    I think there is a second line but I cannot make it out at all. Any ideas on what I can call her besides 'Hey You'?

    I don't know it's name but it sure is striking.

    It looks (and sounds) like a Golden Peoker cross. Let me poke about a bit in the database.

    Hi Tami,

    Golden Peoker is a famous harlequin Phal used in the breeding of many of the newer harlequin crosses. Despite its name, the flowers are generally white as yours are.

    There are two registered crosses with Golden Peoker:

    Golden Peoker x Yuda Blood Red = Ho's Sparkling Neon
    and,
    Golden Peoker x Yungho Princess Gelb = Bright Peacock

    Sorry - that's the best I can do!

    Julie

    PS - I should say there are only two crosses with a parent that starts with "Yu..."

    Thanks for the help! She is pretty, I think. This is a harlequin phal? Does this type have any special needs?

    She is very pretty, and regular Phal treatment will curl her roots!

    The harlequin bit is all about coloration, and not about culture. I love 'em!

    Thanks, all. I was poking around the net and found some pics of Taiwanese harlequin phals: Phal Taiwan Glory and Phal Ever-spring Fairy 'Snow Princess" that look very similar to mine, too. I'm sure little precious is mixed with every flavor under the sun, but that's ok, I like her just as she is.

    Very lovely!
    However, I don't like the shape of those Harlequin Phal. It doesn't look so nice to me.
