Is this a Phal Gigantea?

Post by Jomijoh » Sun Nov 13, 2016 4:41 pm

Hello all!

I am still new to the world of orchids and so I am posing this to the wisdom of the forum. I have had this orchid for roughly 6 months and it recently flowered (see image) from the keiki growing at the base. This plant was advertised as a Phal. (gigantic 'Pepi' AM/AOS x gigantic 'Jumbo'). I can't find much on this name online and the flowers don't look like any other giganteas that I have seen. Did I buy something else?

Looks like Phal bellina, not Phal gigantea.

Thank you. The flower led me to Bellina as well. Orchids.com got me - they sold it as a gigantea...
