Yup, it's a mini Phalaenopsis and sure looks nice and healthy, Brendan. They do branch from the original bloom spike and keep on blooming when they're happy.

When it does finish blooming it might be a good idea to slip it out of the pot and check on the roots. It's potted in sphagnum moss and that can sometimes keep the roots too wet, causing root rot.
