    Default Doritaenopsis Diah Redita Hawaii, 43 flowers!

    Hello, please allow me to share this Doritaenopsis diah redita hawaii in bloom of 43 flowers!

    Actually it's like two plants in one pot, I got it that way from my mom.
    Have no idea how old the plant is.

    One spike has 20 flower buds
    the other one has 23
    I just counted it before I post it here

    Great growing Benny ! The plant and the blooms show very strong characteristics of Doritis ( Phalaenopsis ) pulcherrima.

    Doritis pulcherrima?
    Now I'm confused

    I did search on google images, based on similarities of the flowers. Then I thought it is diah redita hawaii.
    But honestly, I don't know if I'm right/wrong on this one. I got this plant without a tag, I asked my mom and she has no idea at all about the name of all orchid she has. Her knowledge about orchid's name I think is limited to genus.

    Could you please share some knowledge about how am I suppose to identify it? Size and shape of leaf? Flower color & shape?

    I came up with that name by google image it, you know, upload the image then the search engine told me it is similar to diah redita.
    I don't know if its the right name for it

    Sorry Benny, I did not mean that this was a Doritis pulcherrima but a hybrid of it as it shows a lot of characteristics of pulcherrima, from the plant and leaves and the slightly swept- back stance of the flower and the almost upright flower stalk. This is most likely a complex hybrid with pulcherrima featuring prominently in its parentage : particularly the variety ' buysonniana' .

    Actually I have no idea concerning ' Diah Redita' - sounds very Indonesian to me.
