    ^^ Haha No, it kind of looks like it though. When I took the pic the lighting was way better outside.

    Could be a Paph villosum or a hybrid of the villosum - insigne group. It is very attractive whatever its ID.

    It appears to be a hybrid, so it is very unlikely you can get a definite ID. I see some Paph charlesworthii influence in it, and obviously something like villosum or gratrixianum. No matter how much it 'looks just like' something, there will be dozens of other hybrids you can't rule out. For instance, there are over 100 hybrids in which some combination of villosum and charlesworthii is predominate, and all could have family resemblance.

    PaphMadMan, thanks for the information. I am new to growing this orchid. I really enjoy them though and are fairly easy to grow.

    Orchis, I have had this plant for over a year. When I purchased her she had only one bloom. I got the sister bloom this time under my care. *beams*
