    Default NOID Phal

    I'm kind of hoping this one might have an ID because it's so darn pretty! It's my favorite of all my phals. Guesses anyone?
    I finally got out my good camera to take some pics of this, and the flowers had started to fade, so it's not as pretty as it was on first bloom.

    I love everything about this one; the shape of the petals is extra round and the coloring on the lip is just so unusual. My man has good taste

    Most whites, from what I was told way back, are Amabilis crosses. Getting the specific name on many phalaenopsis flowers is almost impossible. There are so many new crosses coming out and many come with no tag. Around here we call them "noid" or no id plants, and assign them a fun name. Unless you plan to cross your orchids, names aren't really good for much other than learning basic culture requirements. Whatever it's name, you got one lovely phal.

    If this is what it looks like when it's faded, wow! This is really a beautiful NOID - the colors in the center against the pure white - great flower!

    It's so striking I'm thinking of having it tattooed on me somewhere!
