The best I can tell is oncidium alliance type from central or south America. Could be a hybrid or even intergeneric. Hard to tell the species/genera unless the vendor gives it to you.

Unless of course one of the gurus here can name it.

Me no guru but just want to join the fun of naming it :lol:/>/>
From the shape of the blooms, my guess is zygopentalum family. Would help if you show the leaves/bulbs too. Unique purple colour :wub:/>/>

thank you all!

I came across that orchid at a florist. Its not a nursery, so it doesn't come with tags.
And it didn't occur to me that it might be a Zygopetalum, as my impression of a Zygo is brown patches and showy purple stripey lips.

But ya, BusyBee you helped to shed some light in that direction. :greenthumb:/>/>/>
After googling, I think might be a Zygonisia hybrid :)/>/>/>

Now let see if I am 'fated' to see it again tomorrow when I pass by that shop. :lol:/>/>/>

As Busy Bee mentioned, it is a Zygopetalum hybrid. likely to be Zygotorea, a cross of
Zygopetalum and Pescatorea.

Your plant looks like a cross of Zygopetalum Bolero X Pescatorea Coronaria.

Busybee,

Its at this florist inside tanjong pagar mrt. She brings in some orchids (depends if she has space to put) every week. Type of orchids really random. Mostly mini Dens and cny phals, sometimes pretty big ionopsis, sometimes Phal cormu-cervis, sometimes smaller Catts. Pot or mount, random. But they all dont come w name tags.
Price reasonable.

Oh, and so I did went back and bought the Zygonisia (or whatever's the name) i posted. It was sale at $19.90, which i believe the original price should be $20+
