Phalaenopsis orchid (sc 2017-12-8)
D044-2017 Orchid, a phalaenopsis species
Usually the orchids that are set out at the front of the Tropical House room in the conservatory have, at best, indifferent backgrounds for the photographer. This was an exception, so I left more of it than I typically would.
Note added December, 2017: When I took this in February, 2017, I either couldn't find, or didn't bother to photograph an ID label for it. In December, this orchid was back on display, and I found a tag which confirmed that it is a phalaenopsis species, but it didn't pin down which one. It gave a possible variety or hybrid commercial name of 'Pink Blush', but Googling that name didn't help me make progress toward identification.
