    That last phal of yours is really a nice warm sunny color, Devasha.

    I LOVE the first one - and I don't really recognize any of the orchids I'm familiar with in it. Do you have ANY idea what genera might be in it?

    OMG! That first one is BEAUTIFUL! Love that! The colour suggests a Zygo hybrid, perhaps a Zygo multi-generic, such as hamelswelsara?

    Lovely phals, Devan. I particularly like the white with the red lip. Looking forward to pix of the NOID - 50 blooms ? WOW 111

    I would think, wouldn't you, Yew, that 50 blooms on one plant would help to identify it? Unless these flowers are particularly small, it must be a noteworthy specimen. Jordan thinks he sees some zygo in it. I have NO idea what it is, but I want one - I think we need more pictures of "Peter" so we can find out just what this lovely orchid is.
