    Default Phalaenopsis NOID....not one of you knew i had this :)

    This is my two year old Phal that was about 5 years old when i got it. I have bloomed it once, about a year and a half ago, but not since. This must be where all that energy went! i have kept this secret for 6 months now!

    All up, there are 65 buds so far, more on the way with ever growing spikes,
    11 spikes overall, maybe one more developing, about 7 healthy leaves, and a great root system. It stands about 1.4m tall, from base of pot to the highest tip.
    This is one STUNNER of an orchid!

    One problem-I dont have an ID, and an ID would be VERY helpful for the show... Any ideas? Amey?

    Congrats, Jordan! That is going to be spectacular when in full bloom.

    Unfortunately, as far as IDing goes, as I know you are aware there are so many look alike hybrids out there that you will never be able to get a definite ID.
