    New Phal in bloom

    I bought this a year or two ago for 5$, it had just 2 small leaves.

    This is the first time it has flowered.



    dont look too closely at the cheesey photoshop work, it was a quickie


    Cheers'

    Oh, wow! I love how the red is all splotchy. I'm not sure if that is even a word, but I'll use it anyway.

    Nice. Did it come with a name tag? It's what's known as a harlequin Phal. There are lots of different hybrids in many different colors, but all have maroonish splotches.

    I doesn't matter - it's a nice-looking plant with or without a name.

    can you make an educated guess?

    How about this?

    http://www.bigleaforchids.com/catalo...5152d2f27dd580

    Notice it mentions this one is being produced in large numbers, so it should be widely available. But it also says it's been used for further breeding and, complicating it further, is that many of the large commercial nurseries don't register the names they use or just sell anonymous Phals. So just like it for what it is, without knowing the name.

    thanks Bruce,

    It is my first orchid, so it's kind of special and it really doesnt matter about its pedigree to me... I have recently been given a tricolor gongora (sp?)... interesting in that the coloration appears like it will be simular when it blooms (still very immature)
