I agree with Florian...perhaps a cross? I have a caricinum 'Fox Valley' and it ain't an easy one to bloom so far. If anyone
on ST has a photo of one they've bloomed, I'd love to see the photo.

When I posted this, maybe I should have said I wasn't certain about the identity. It certainly looks different than the limited number of photos I could find, and some of them are probably Phrag. pearcei. However, checking my reference books, the plants physical characteristics fit the description for Phrag. caricinum. I have asked the nursery it came from (Popow) to supply any information about the plants' origin. I will ask Frank Cervera to take a look, as well.
Regards,
Paul

This is most assuredly not a caricinum. This looks like the hybrid between lindleyanum and pearcei, a hybrid that was described as Phrag. brasiliense.

Best regards,

Best regards,
Thank you! I will change the label and enjoy the plant.

I bought a „caricinum“ from popow wich never flowers right now. But i am sure its not the species. The real one has much more narrow leaves. Bought ist as a young plant and the Habitus looks like your plant.

Well, a bit of egg on my face. I have Phrag. lindleyanum, and I should have spotted its influence right away.

That has amazing color. Thanks for sharing. Picked up in spike from where? OL?
It is Popow Orchids breeding and was labelled as Phrag. caricinum. I purchased it on eBay.
