    Default Need Your Help With This Orchid

    I know this upsets some of you when this question is asked, but I would love help with an ID on this one. I know there are 1000's of orchids out there with no names but I am hoping
    someone may have this one and have the name for it. It is a beautiful burgandy/red and deep purple combination. When in natural light the burgandy is so deep that it appears black and the purple is a deep royal purple. It is very long lasting and there are two new spikes forming. I have two plants and both are in bloom with two spikes and both have two new large spikes forming so I will have blooms for a long time. Thanks in advance for any help identifying it.

    I know what this is Bill, but its a carefully guarded secret. The name has been changed to protect the innocent, so we will simply call it 'Beautiful Orchid' until someone posts its true identity. I am sure somebody here at The Forum will do this for free, where I only will tell for a price!! AL

    ok, while you both negotiate your terms and conditions of the deal,hehehe, im think mauracae posted this one not long ago for id. Well i hope it was/hope it is.!???? The Miltonia/ miltassia, zygo and brassia similarities( though obviously not an id attempt in the slightest on my part), instantly prompted me of Maura's noid pic.

    I have no idea what it is, but will speculate on two of the components: Rhynchostele bictoniense, and a Brassia of some sort.

    sorry Bil, I haven't got a clue.
    But very beautiful blooms, and healthy plants. Keep doing what you're doing.
    Cheers

    Looks very similar to Colmanara (or Oncostele, as it is being called now) Masai/Masai Red. The one I have seen before had more white on the lip but shape and petal colour looks right.

    Hope you get the name. Beautiful orchid with or without an identity.

    cheers,
