    This cross is Phalaenopsis Deventeriana X Phalaenopsis violacea, so the heavy influence of violacea is apparent.

    This is a registered cross, just that it is registered under a different name as Phalaenopsis Sweet Memory. This is a recross of the parents. The reason they have a different name is that one of the parents, Phalaenopsis Deventeriana has been registered as Phalaenopsis amabilis x Phalaenopsis amboinensis, but none of the remakes resemble it but a cross Phalaenopsis aphrodite x Phalaenopsis amboinensis looks like Phalaenopsis Deventeriana, and hence all modern day crosses are based on this new Phalaenopsis Deventeriana. A lot of confusion.

Check out "Roulette" (Phal. Roulette was registered in the 1970's, most likely a white/red lip; Bock's is a harlequin-type stripe ). Not necessarily a reason not to buy a plant you like, but be aware.

    LOL Al, I never imagined it that way, sure sounds like the Phal got a better deal, but I enjoy the rather rainy cool summers in Bremen than the scorching dry heat in my city LOL

    My point is, this is not registered under what appears to be the labelled name Liodora (or Liodoro, as shown on the web site). If you this plant is Phal. Sweet Memory, why confuse the issue by calling it Liodora? It's much like telling someone that you know his name is George, but you prefer to call him Trevor because you like that name better.

    Its not about liking aparticular name, its because the genealogy of one of the parent is unclear, which I pointed out in the earlier post
