it's a dendrobium that has been colored with food coloring. they're only available as cut flowers, and only in parts of asia.

It is a Dendrobium hybrid of the phalaenopsis type. Your picture is an artificially colored cut flower, as someone else noted, but they are available almost anywhere, not just in Asia.

LOL. No not at all... My boyfriend brought home a bouquet of these flowers way before he got me my phal. They were such a neat color I had to take a picture (At that time I did not even know that they were Orchids)... When I got my first phal I realized that the bouquet that I had was a bouquet of orchids so I wanted to find the real plant. unfoutunatly the color is fake . Is there any type of Orchid out there with a similar color???
