How to ID my orchid

Posted by Indiana.Matt 5b-6a Indiana (My Page) on

I purchased a phalaenopsis orchid from Just Add Ice Orchids and it has no ID as to its hybrid name. How can I find out this info?

The simple answer is once a no id always a no id.
If you post a picture of your orchid and it is a widely distributed mericlone (copy)
you might get lucky.

If you call them, they may be able to tell you. If you buy orchids from an orchid nursery, they will always have a label.

There's no way to tell what it is, most likely. There are tons of white with yellow or red lip, and more tons of pinks, and these are the most commonly sold orchids.

Sometimes it is written/lasered on the plastic pot.

Good luck,
