help with ID...is this a vanda-phal hybrid?

yaki-noriJuly 18, 2011

Hi everyone,

My husband brought this unidentified beauty home for me over two months ago and it's still going strong! Four branched stems covered with many small phal-like flowers that have lightly ruffled petals with magenta edges. The foliage however, looks a bit more vanda-like than phal-like -- the leaves are thin, strappy and 'stacked'. I've searched the orchid books at the library but haven't been able to find anything else like this lovely plant. What do you guys think? Any ideas about what this might be?

Thanks!

it looks like a beautifully well grown peloric hybrid of phalaenopsis.
what for the leaves many species of phals have strap like leaves like that.
