    NOOOOOOOO!

    Hey, how come the RHS site still has doritenopsis then?

    Anyway, I have been told that Doritis can take just a bit more watering as well.

    Thank's eikon. Beautiful flowers. As Julie said, you may consider that's a phal
    Now we admit that Doritis are Phalaenopsis even if you can see a difference!
    Doritaenopsis = Phalaenopsis (or Doritis) x Phalaenopsis=Phal.

    thanks
    i know that the taxonomists now call them phals, but i like the word "Doritaenopsis" it's just a fun word.
    But i hate the word
    "Doritis". sounds like a skin condition

    Yesy, in my opinion, as the difference really exists, it’s better to tell Doriteanopsis

    I think the plant is pretty cool, but I don't get how it's semi-peloric. I thought peloria was when the plant changed some petals to extra lips. And should I use peloria or pelorism to describe something being peloric/peloricness?
