    Default Help: Phalaenopsis ID

    Today I bought two Phalaenopsis in a supermarket. There are no plant labels. Since I am new to orchids, I have no ideas what's their names. Could you help me?

    Here are pictures. One Phal.:



    Another Phal. It is very similar to Phal. Baldan's Kaleidoscope 'Golden Treasure'(Phal. Hausermann's Candy x Daryl Lockhart), Phal. KV Beauty 'Golden Treasure' (Salu Peoker x Chih Shang's Stripes), and Phal. Brother Girl 'Brother'(Brother Canary x Cindy Danseuse):





    Thanks.

    There are many Phal. hybrids that look similar, so unless you have a positive identification from the supplier, it is not possible to give a definitive name to your plants. They are very nice, so just enjoy them as the beautiful flowers they are.

    I agree with Susan re the ID. Both the phals are beautiful.

    Nice phals, but not really any way to correctly identify them. You can give them a name of your own for your own records, but your plant tags should reflect the Noid label until you find out what the actual name of the plant is.

    Cheers,

    Hmm... One more PM for Brutal_Dreamer, this thread raises another question...

    But the blossoms are wonderful! Great shots!
