    Silvia, did you get these at a grocery or some other store? If so, they are some hybrid that might not have a specific name - we tend to call them NOIDs, as in No ID. In that case, you can name them yourself!

    They sure are pretty!

    I Have one that looks like the white one in the bottom picture and the clear container is stamped with Innocence.
    All of the ones I buy seem to be in 2 containers, the outer clay or colored one, and the clear one that orchids is potted in, LOOK at the clear one, I found; by complete accident while re-potting, that a lot of them are marked on the container itself. hope that help and BTW Nice Phals!

    The spotted ones are called Harlequin phals. Sorry I don't have a specific name for you.

    Panam, the white with purple spots I got it from a greenhouse and surprinsingly it didn't have the name of the species. I've been doing some online research and have find Dtps leopard prince but then it doesn't look like mine. The white one I got from a grocery store. It didn't have a name either.
