    Default Dpts. 'Don Vito'



    this is actually Dpts. Gemstone's Venus Envy, but i call him Don Vito because i think he looks like Marlon Brando. when i purchased it there were 2 spikes one had 'normal' flowers (top left) and the other spike was what i guess you could call 'semi peloric'.
    i guess this is a fairly common mutation in this clonal line as i have found others just like it.

    I am not familiar with the name Dtps. Can anyone tell me What kind of orchid it is? What's its alliance, genus? What is its culture. I just got one and don't know how to care for it.

    DTPS stands for Doritanopsis = Doritis X Phaleanopsis

    Basically the care is just like a phal.

    and to Joan's question, some Doritanopsis need a bit more light than standard phals.

    That was very baaaad!!!

    And to Joan's question, Doritis was a genus closely allied with Phalaenopsis. Those little taxonomy devils have been busy, however, and they've decided that Doritis rightfully belongs in Phalaenopsis. Hence, no more Doritis and no more Dtps. It's all one big happy Phalaenopsis phamily now.
