    I recently received this as a gift but it has no ID and the place it was purchased never has a clue what they have. Anyone have any ideas what it might be or what might be in it's background?
    I'm not the best photographer, but I have a friend who is and might be by this weekend so I might be able to post some better pictures later this weekend.
    Thanks in advance for any ideas/input.
    For reference, the petals are about 4.5" long.

    I think it is a straight phillipinense and a nice one at that. Lucky you. The petals don't twist much in that clone.

    That was my first thought, also.

    My only reservation that it is straight phili is the pouch. It certainly has a lot of phili in it if not straight phili.

    It is a philippinense. I have seen some philis in the past with some red on the pouch and a little bit green at the base of the petals. It is a very special plant you have since it or its parents are from a special colony (I don't know the exact location tough. Perhaps someone knows..) We don't see that very often.
