    Very pretty. These are 'harlequin ' phalaenopsis and the markings are asymmetrical and irregular on each and every flower and are not considered as 'defects'.

    It is not the spots I consider defects
    if you pay attention to the lateral petals, it looks like a small part is missing
    actually there is a small wrinkle there, an a piece of the margin is bent behind the petal
    on the upper flower on both sides, the lower 2 flowers the right side is affected
    It is not easy to see

    Very pretty... I'm curious if you know what the white one with pink freckles is in the background? I'm looking for one of similar color.

    The white one with pink freckles is a NOID Phal, in our shops most of the orchids are NOID or misslabeled

    Thanks, its like that here too. Very few of my Phals have names. One came with a name and one I was able to identify.

    Phals are so pretty I always for get to look for tags. Same with dendrobiums. I love them all. You found a very nice harlequin phal...
