    After getting dragged all over the country with me for a couple of decades this finally bloomed (evidently it likes the heat and humidity of coastal central Florida better than desert and mountain living!) I have no idea what it is other than being a phrag or a paph. If someone has a name (or even ideas) for this specimen, please let me know.
    Thanks :)

    A Paph. Looks like Delrossi? (delenatii x rothschildianum) probably not but something to think about what to treat it like.

    All right, I think you nailed it! I pulled up a photo on orchidweb.com and pretty much identical (plus the site says the older ones were hard to get to bloom, something I can vouch for with this one). Theirs has a little more of the color and less of the white, but on this plant right now one end has more color in the blooms than the other end (same plant, go figure!). Leaves are the same and so is the flower configuration. This one has about a 6" 'wingspan' tip to tip horizontally. Thanks for the help
