Yes, what a great daughter you have.

That first orchid you mentioned may actually be Potinara Eye Candy 'Sweet Sensation'. Check it out here: http://www.pbase.com/dreams202...

thank you Jim the first row looks just like the one at the show !!! there were so many it was hard to choose. Good thing she gave me a limit I hope they live for me I have one Phal that I'v had for about 5 years and it's bloomed once and one little phal I'v had for a year thats never bloomed so to say I'm a novice at this new adventure is an under statement !!!! I will be visiting here a lot !!!

Trying to make sense out of the second one; try Dtps Sogo Vivien 'Marginata' JC/AOS (Sogo Alice x Phal Zuma's Pixie). If the leaf edges are not varigated, try leaving out the 'marginata'. Just got company, gotta run.

The company finally went home so I'm back. I think your third orchid is Dtps. Sogo Gotris (Phal. Be Tris x Dtps. Sogo Manager). If you Google the names I gave you, you can check out the pictures to see if you get a match. Good luck and welcome to the orchid forum.
