    Default ARGH! another NO ID me thinks

    Ok so in mourning of my lost paph bud I went out in search of a consolation prize... I bought a new beautiful orchid buddy who is all in bloom. I paid my money and came home. I pulled the tag and it reads Bllra. Tahoma Glacier 'Green'. Hmmm I say. Let me look this up with google. Guess what site pops up having a photo... none other than RVO I'm like cool I trust these guys to have the right photo with the right name. But low and behold it's not matching the plant I bought. So I go back over to the orchid shop and look at all the pots that have the same guy in them and they are all tagged with "Bllra. Tahoma Glacier 'Green'" So I don't think it's the shops fault now that I have a NOID. So I point out that they are mislabled and ask if they accept returns of mislabled plants... No sir we don't accept returns of plants, they might have picked up a disease and also how do you know that it's mislabled maybe your information is incorrect. So here ya go... Can you guys please confirm that this is NOT Bllra. Tahoma Glacier 'Green'? And maybe give me an idea of who this is? Hmmm maybe I should start carrying a laptop with wireless internet when I go orchid shopping.... Hmmmm

    That is DEFINITELY NOT a Tahoma Glacier. How large are the individual flowers, that will help hunt down the right plant, or at least a close one.

    Each flower is about 1.5" x 1.5" The spike is about 45-50" long and just full of the little guys. The yellow part in the pic can be green in certain light.

    The entire tag reads as follows

    Bllra. Tahoma Glacier 'Green'
    LC072 R=Wk 17/04 1x= Wk 18/04 S=TRL

    It is a light blue tag. I did notice some tags in other ones that had something about Grown in Canada...

    at first I thought maybe the clone was different to the RVO one... but alas.. found the actual clone "Green"

    Not the same...

    However, you have some great information on that tag.

    LC072 will more than likely be the grower's ID.

    R=Wk 17/04 could be when it was repotted
    1x... not sure what this means
    S=TRL again will mean something but can't figure it out...

    good luck with the name hunt Wolf.

    Cheers
    Tim

    ps, I like the colours on that and talk about floriferous!!!

    Yeah they are pretty and there are lots of them. I like the lightning bolt coming out of the red on the lip on that individual flower so took it's pic. Every one seems to be just a bit different.

    I have no idea what that is, but it is still a very nice consolation plant. The flower kind of reminds me of
    Colm. Cherry Pop, but...oh well, I don't know.
