Phalaenopsis pulcherrima

Post by Yosia » Wed Feb 07, 2018 9:42 pm

Hello,
I got Phal labeled Phal pulcherrima few months ago. But it has different labelum (lower photo) from my other Phal pulcherrima. Is it a different variation of Phal pulcherrima or maybe hybrid of something?
Does anyone can help?
Thank you

That is certainly not pulcherrima. Likely a hybrid.

I agree with Ray 100%. Whatever it *is*, it is beautiful, but it absolutely is not pulcherrima. Could you go back to the seller and inquire?
