    Smile Dor. pulcherrima var champornensis X Dor. pulcherrima var champornensis alba

    I have never seen a plant this large of this variety. And I have never seen flowers this large on a Pulcherrima. After seeing a ton of these, I finally found one that caught my eye. I love the little antennae things at the back. And I noticed, the lip looks like a moth sitting on a flower.

    Your very nice flowers prompted me to do some research this morning , and this is what I think I learned:
    -var. champornensis is an informal horticultural variety name given to all peloric forms of Dor. pulcherrima, of whatever color
    -absent the peloric traits, the simple name for your plant is Dor. pulcherrima var. alba 'Lemon Dolly', if I read the name correctly
    -although Eric Christenson proposed eliminating the genus Doritis and moving all members into Phalaenopsis (section Esmerelda), the RHS has not accepted that revision, so the genus remains Doritis
    -most of the recently awarded flowers of Dor. pulcherrima range in size (natural spread) from 3.0-4.0 cm
    Good growing

    Very interesting stuff...and as mine is not peloric I can drop the longest part of the name. Unfortunately as I have nicknamed it 'Champ'. lol Much shorter and easier to pronounce! Thanks though...I find the little diffences interesting too.

    Yeah, this one definitely followed me. lol I've seen so many of these. I've seen them at shows...all over town. But none looked exactly like this one with it's super tall spike and large plant with big huge roots. It looked like a standard phal sitting there...maybe a little smaller than a mid sized phal. Then I picked up the pot and saw those roots. I had to bring it home...lol. I'm going to need the ten step program on shopping where they don't have plants one of these days.

    That is a great looking phal or Doritis whatever it is now, Connie. I love the lip on it. That bloom spike is huge too.

    cheers,

    I just mail ordered a Doritis pulcherrina var. champorensis and expect it next week. I doubt mine will be this lovely though. I can see why you purchased this Connie and by the why I wonder what you would call a orchid ten step program. Something like Orchids Anonymous (OA for short)? What would the steps include: (1) I control orchids, they do not control me. (ya right). Or how about (2) Orchids are nothing but the devil's seducers and they are to be banished from this earth (not while I'm still around). Anyway Connie you get the idea. This is at least a beautiful addiction that I believe needs no therapy or program to resolve. AL

    This is a seedling with one parent labelled as Dor. pulcherrima var. champornensis alba 'Lemon Dolly'... a seedling, not the parent clone, so it can't be called 'Lemon Drop'... NO other clone of Dor. pulcherrima can legitimately be called 'Lemon Dolly'. This seedling would simply be called Dor. pulcherrima f. alba until a cultivar name is given - which could be 'Champ' if Connie so chooses, even if this plant does not qualify as f. champornensis.

    The RHS only has authority over hybrid names, and decides which genus and species names it accepts for registration as parents of hybrids. It is in no way the final authority on taxonomic issues... there is no such final authority. Whether Doritis or Phalaenopsis is accepted taxonomically in the long run remains to be seen.
