Default Tag with wrong name.

This is a Better-Gro baby that flourished for the first time. The tag said Blc. Phet Ratchasima lavender and I turned out this color. It is nice and big, I still don't know if it will have fragrance because it is raining. The sad thing is that now I do not have her identification, and I do not want the same to happen to me with the others, as seven are to flourish this month.

Incorrect tagging occasionally happens to even the best and very careful vendors of orchids.

My ... Buying the Better Grow bag orchids exponentially increases the odds of having a mislabeled tag. They serve a huge wholesale market, and offer plants cheaper because of packaging and extreme volume. If that is really important to you, you might want to search elsewhere for orchids for your collection.

You are right but I started with them years ago and at first it did not happen like that, I have about a hundred plants between large and small bought in their bags. I also buy a lot from Hawaii but the little ones there take about two years to reach flowering size, the last ones I bought were on eBay because I was looking for those hybrids and I only found them there, I never do this again, the little plants they were so small it was sad. It is true that any a is wrong in a tag. Thanks for answering. Regards.

Such a beautiful and large flower. Thanks for sharing that photo merita! A real privilege to see.

With the name tags ------- don't worry about that.

Being able grow any orchid purely for what it is --- is so nice already. This orchid is so lucky to have you looking after it! It certainly is in excellent hands.

Thank you friend, you always encourage me to continue my hobby without fighting for the things that happen. Now I am excited because I have some that will bloom for the first time and this is a surprise that I enjoy, they are not as beautiful as yours but they will be with the passing of the years. I will be putting them as they open. Regards.

Most welcome merita! That flower is equally as beautiful! I opened up and clicked on that photo quite a number of times already! The very nice lip and the beautiful swirl. The whole combination. Absolutely beautiful. In fact, I was even going online to see if it was related to thongsupran or chunyeah etc.

If you contact Better Grow and tell them where and when you bought it, they might be able to track down the correct name.
