    Default Is This Phal lindenii??

    That is what the vendor told me, but all the pics of P lindenii that I have seen on the web are different. This one do have a faint stripe on the petals but the lip is a solid purple except for that fine line on the middle. If it is not a P lindenii, then any idea what it is? First bud that open for me, all the first buds blasted and it took several days for the plant to adjust to its new environment.

    Sorry but close up pic is the best I could manage with the crappy webcam.



    The whole plant. Originally mounted in cork bark now remounted on a piece of bamboo.



    I appreciate any suggestion to its ID. TIA

    Hi Tanya,

    I don't think this is a lindenii, the flowers are different and doesn't have that jap manga witch look to it... also to be more helpful, my lindenii has dark mottled leaves.

    Further, the sepals on yours remind me heaps of phal parishii but that isn't it either... so maybe it is a hybrid of the two...

    or maybe Phal deliciosa...

    good luck on the ID.

    cheers
    tim

    Thank you both. I knew it wasn't the mottled type of lindenii but was hoping there is another form.... dumb I guess .

    Nothing showed up also on my search for Phal species, so I guess you are right Tim, maybe this is a primary hybrid.

    Default I think that is Phalaenopsis deliciosa...

    which is listed in Cootes' book as Kingidium philippinensis.

    Thanks NTG.

    I have viewed several pictures of Phal/Kingidium deliciosa/philippinensis on the net and I think its not it. The reason is the shape of the lip. The lips of deliciosa have those "fangs" while mine if viewed from the top look like a droplet. Its well rounded, which is why I thought its lindenii. The leaves of K deliciosa have wavy edge (I've seen them being sold by the same vendor) and they are darker in color.

    I came accross an article which mentioned a cross between Kingiella deliciosa and Phal parishii, its called Phaliella Snow Drop. I couldn't find a picture of the plant or the flower, do you have any info about this particular cross? I am beginning to think that this might be a hybrid, maybe parishii and Doritis or deliciosa, I don't know. I also took a good look of the petals under a magnifier and discovered that the soft pink blush is made up of tiny pink dots.

    It is definately not P. lindenii and is a hybrid. I would suggest in my humble oppinion that one parent is P. lobbii or P. parishii because of the lip. I believe the second parent might be Doritis pulcherrima; however, since the inflorescence does not grow straight up, it may not be. P. deliciosa or ducumbens formerly in the genera Kingidium and later Doritis could be the second parent, however, I doubt it. Interesting coloration. You should be proud and enjoy it.
