Aug. 2, 2015 [update]: The odd growth that turned out to be a flower spike branched and has produced more flowers. Checking OrchidWiz, we are certain this is Phal. Timothy Christopher.

Sept. 28, 2014: While hunting for sponge rock to use in re-potting our Dracula plants, we found ourselves at the English Gardens in Royal Oak. There were the amazing no id Dendrobium and Oncidium alliance plants but nothing exciting enough for us. On our way out, though, Larry noticed this little oddity sitting amongst the sea of mini Phals.
