    Default Spathoglottis NOID

    Can anybody help ID?

    This photo is a bit washed out; it's actually a bit more violet/lavender, less white.

    You will note that there are two of them in this picture. The one in the foreground is the one which has the open bloom, held high above the leaves.

    It's not plicata? Would be a dead ringer for it, especially if the color is just a little more violet.

    It looks like a nice cross between S plicata lavender and S plicata alba. Very pretty, nice growing Sue.

    lja: yeah, I figure it's a Spath. plicata. I just wanted to see if anybody else had a different idea. Thanks for your vote for plicata!

    Tanya: I think it's just the standard violet, washed out by my metal halide bulb. And I can't take credit for the bloom; I just picked these up at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Marked at $20.00 per, but discounted to a reasonable $5.50 per, then offered to me in particular for $3 per.
