Thanks Ramon. Embarrassed to admit never Seen a TSC in the flesh. Was wondering if that might be what this was. Is about what I would expect.

Hi Robert, this can be a clone of Phalaenopsis Tying Shin Cupid (Phalaenopsis Sogo Lawrence X Phalaenopsis Kuntrarti Rarashati). But it can be any of Phal Sogo Lawrence hybird or Phal Sogo Lawrence itself.

Most of the Phal Tying Shin Cupid I see in person and photographs are not as round because of KR. Color is more solid, and less spots from Sogo Lawrence.

You could google Phal Tying Shin Cupid and see examples of clone 'Montclair' posted here on Orchidboard.

Is a little small for straight SL; but plant was terribly desiccated, so possibly. Flowers were okay, so figured lack of water after flowers fully formed ...

Be interesting to see it flower next year.

Thanks for comments.
