Purple Martin is the registered name of the orchid. I had one also and would agree that it may be that. I don't believe there are any true blue orchids, just various shades of lavendar/blue. I'm not sure what you mean by botanical blue.

Possibly.... good find I think... I got it out of the $10 mini phal section at a local nursery.

Botanical blue is the name given to the "blue" we see in plants that can't produce blue.
Like how blue phals are actually varying shades of lavender or purple. None of them are blue... but it's the bluest your gonna get from a flower that can't make blue.

I suppose I was asking if it looked more like purple Martin or blue Martin.
