Phalaenopsis blooming

2005 July Orchid Blooms 002

I came home from work today to find that the first flower of my phalaenopsis that is in bloom had opened! This phalaenopsis is my original orchid and it hasn't bloomed since it was in bloom when it was given to me, either 2 or 3 and a half years ago. I used to have some idea of what type of phalaenopsis it might be, but didn't write it down and so now am on the hunt to find out.

I am afraid the Phal in the picture is a hybrid and you may never know its true name unless you or the giftgiver can backtrack to its point of origin and the nursery personnel can help. In any case, enjoy it for its beauty and its your first. But don't make up a name and apply it, its confusing and if someone wants to use the pollen, they shouldn't, since the true grex name is unknown.
