Jun. 8, 2014 [update]: We checked into Larry’s Orchids again today to get more information about these “named” Phals. The Phal. Chian Xen is actually a Phal. Chian Xen Diamond.

We saw a picture of the Phal. Panda from the wholesaler that they got the plants from but no further details regarding which particular Panda it is.

As for the Phal. Red Ching ‘Very Fancy’, it could be Phal. Chingruey’s Fancy.

Jun. 6, 2014: Larry had the day off today and what better way spend it than to hang out at Larry’s Orchids and Tropicals. The shipment that they got in yesterday included a vast array of bare-root Phals which Larry happily dove into (figuratively). This is continuing the trend of “when Kherwin’s away, Larry will get Phals”.

Phal. Yu Pin Panda internet picture(picture from Internet) There doesn’t seem to be a registered Phal hybrid just called Panda. This is a picture of Phal. Yu Pin Panda which seems to be the most popular one. We’ll have to wait until our plant blooms to really know what flower we get.

Phal. Red Ching Very FancyPhal. Red Ching Very Fancy. Writing this post just confirms my hatred for these random Phal hybrids. I cannot find any information (or picture) about any permutation of the name of this plant online anywhere. This might as well be a NoID. Grrr

If it were left up to me, I will only get Phal hybrids from the people who creates the hybrid themselves. It’s looking like these mass retail places would just slap whatever name they feel like on these plants to pass them as more than just a NoID plant.

Phal. Chian Xen
Phal. Chian Xen and surprise surprise! There is no such thing as a Phal simply named “Chian Xen”. The International Orchid Registry list 28 different hybrids with “Chian Xen” in their names.

Dtps. Little Gem Stripes 'Cat's King'
Dtps. Little Gem Stripes ‘Cat’s King’. This one is at least familiar since we already have a Dtps. Little Gem Stripes (story told in this post).

Cptra. Sydney Smith 'Green Monkey'
Cptra. Sydney Smith ‘Green Monkey’ AM/AOS. Ok so Larry didn’t bring home just Phals, he also got this lovely plant. It has a couple of spikes growing!

Orchid count: #231-235
