    Question Unknown Phrag orchid

    Hi folks,

    I am about to try my first Phrag! But it seems to have lost its tag. Any idea who this might be? Thanks!



    I've read about the basics and Paphs like me well enough, so I thought I would give it a try.
    Any and all tips on Phrags. welcome though!

    Though the orchid bloom in your photo is a bit misshaped, it could be Phrag Barbara LeAnn. Is it a tiny bloom?

    Cheers,

    It's about besseae sized, so not large but not really tiny either.

    I was actually wondering about Hanne Popow myself, but wasn't sure. This bloom had already fallen off when I bought it. The plant was nice and strong though and it has a second spike coming, so I thought "why not". I will try and get a cleaner shot when the second spike blooms.

    It's blooming again now! Anyone want to take a crack at the name?

    I tend to think not Barbara LeAnn since mine has a yellow with red inner lip, which I don't see in the picture your linked to, Bruce. Could it be Hanne Popow?

    Yes, Phrag Hanne Popow, you are correct. I can see the center color in this photo. So pretty.
