Is it a Phal? Male
Default Is it a Phal?

Got this about a year ago because I liked the shape, especially for a 'mostly' yellow. The Tag doesn't even indicate if a phal or dtps; all it has is TEM0079. I figure it is a temporary tag, and they never got around to putting the proper tag in before they took it to the seller. The bloom is a peachy yellow with light veining, and about 4 1/2 " x 3". Anyone seen this one before?

For once, the taxonomic revisions make it easy... Doritis is now Phalaenopsis. so all Doritaenopsis are now Phalaenopsis. Loses information about the parentage (like the rest of the "lumping" that has happened) but in this case, removes ambiguity. (I didn't say that was an improvement...)

It's impossible to identify a hybrid with any confidence - especially in a genus like Phalaenopsis with so many combinations from multiple sources. In fact, many crosses in the trade aren't registered, so even if there's a name it doesn't follow that you can figure out the parentage. Someone may have something "close" but if so, the best you're going to do for a name is "looks like..."

So many Phalaenopsis hybrids look similar or even alike, so you'll never know for sure, but I just want to say, as someone who (for now anyway) is growing only Phals, it's gorgeous!

True ...... when a flower looks like that shape ....... it's a phal for sure - or at least it is these days based on the latest classification method.

I used to also wonder what's that Dtps. stuff that they had in some names. But ----- very nicely ------ they are lumped into the phals category.
