    Thank you everyone! I wish I had more time to take more detailed pictures but it was either that, missing the last train & getting stranded or sleeping at home

    Unusual isn't it? The colour doesn't show up properly but it's very deep burgundy red sort of colour. I think it was a vendor from Taiwan, they mostly had different Phals. I got to sniff their Penang Girl because I have one and I've read different things about its smell. I quite liked it.

    I was quite surprised to see the dtps label since doritis has been merged with phal and it does not exist as a taxonomical name any longer.

    Yeah, other than having to change a ton of tags and informing thousands of people (including those at the show that probably had something to do with it!)

    really? Is this a fairly new development? I was looking at some orchids online (I am not buying any more, honest ) and there were a few plants labelled as Dtps still.

    Doritis is now considered to be a true Phalaenopsis. But Dtps still is the accurate genus for the hybrids. They do that when they change a genus. They don't change the names of the hybrid genera they remain the same. So even though a Dtps. primary hybrid really has both parents from Phal, it's still a Dtps.

    Elena, your photos are wonderful, and I love both your Paphs! Your avatar is quite handsome, to boot! Thanks for taking us along on your adventure, and I'm glad you had fun! Many orchidaceous returns!

    Thank you Julie for the kind words and for the information!

    And Judi, it's definitely worth paying a visit if you can get there, it's quite an experience.
