    Default P. Newberry Parfait 'Picotee' AM/AOS & AM/RHS

    This one caught my eye today while in the greenhouse. I love the shape and the fuzzy coloring on the edges.

    Hi B_D, had to drop a note about this phal as it is P. Newberry Parfait "Picotee" AM/AOS & AM/RHS.

    I really wonder if anyone knows what the true P. Wedding Promanade looks like now. The name is used for every NOID under the sun at the big box stores. LOL

    I will update the thread title then. This was a purchase at my orchid society. They had a large donation from a big box store of dying plants. I got this one and one other and nursed them back from the brink. LOL. Maybe I switched the tags by mistake since the other is labeled P. Newberry Parfait 'Picotee' AM/AOS & AM/RHS. the P. Wedding Promanade is a solid, branching pink.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, sometimes those tags move all by themselves!
    I have a plant I call Wedding Promename also. It sounds like your description. Actually I spent many hours reasearching that name and plant trying to tie down what it originally looked like. I think I found it but one can never be sure.
    The newberry parafait is known for its multi-spiking. I cut the 5th spike off mine last year! Right not it has a spike with 2 keikis on it and a basal keiki as well !

    Cool. I am just happy that mine is finally looking healthy and growing! It was not in very good shape when I got it. When I un-potted it, I actually found two plants in the same sphag mess. One with a spike (flowers fading fast) that had NO roots - tied to a plant that had a couple of leaves and a few, still alive roots. They were actually wired together! I threw away the one with no roots and the dying spike and repotted this one. It has been about a year.

    I like flowers with picotee edges. I think it adds a sparkle to the plants.
