Hello everybody
I must bring this plant to an orchid show next weekend (not to be award) but I'm not but is it's label correct. My label is phragmipedium humboldtii.
What do you think.
Any suggest is well accept.
Thank you

looks like a Phrag. Nitidissimum for me. By the way, nice flower!

It's not the Phragmipedium of a thousand names (humboldtii/popowii/warscewiczianum/lmnop). It may be a hybrid of it, though. Did part of the label get broken off or is it possible that part of the name has faded/worn off?

I don't think I can give you an accurate name for it, since there are a lot of this type of hybrid that look similar, and then when you add in all the taxonomic changes over the years, the picture gets even fuzzier.

They're pretty flowers either way, even if you don't know the name.

It is NOT humboldtii. It is a hybrid. It could be Grande, or Wossner Supergrande, or Nitidissimum, or Mont Fallu, etc. There are so many hybrids that it could be. There is no way to tell now. This will always be a plant without a name. It's a very attractive NoID (No Identification).

Thank for your comments. I share the idea it could be a P. Grande and I'll mark it in this way.
