Hello Kevin,
Yes it is Pleione Tongariro , I also was surprised at two suppliers , one sold my formosana Pl. and Pl. was Tongariro and the other sold my Tongariro Pl.  , Pl. formosana and it was !
Yet formosana Pl.  is light pink and dark pink Tongariro Pl. much more !

Hi Kevin,
they look like Tongariro to me, too. Very nice bowl, well grown and uniform, congratulations. Don't be too disappointed, Tongariro is such a good pleione, reliable, pretty, long lasting and prolific. But if it isn't what you paid for, you should take it back. Maybe it's too late for that, but in future, keep your receipt. Then if your purchase isn't what you expected, the seller should replace it or give you your money back.

Labelling errors can happen in the best kept nurseries, but if it's done deliberately and on a large scale, that's very naughty. I notice that some of the larger bulb suppliers can't even get the name right in their glossy catalogues / packaging and continue to advertise Pleione formosana as Pleione formosanum!!! I have given up writing to them because my gentle advice is invariably ignored. ;)

Thanks to everyone who replied to my photo and let me know their thoughts.

I will amend my labels and have another think about possible hybrids for next year.

Kind regards, kevin

I have just bought some pleiones from Ian Butterfield and they arrived today....... Yes I know, I'm a lucky devil.

As Erling already received his order on January 7th I'm a bit nervous - nothing here so far.  :-\
What about all the others of you? Is Ian just a bit later this year?

Thomas, would you like me to ask Ian if he has sent yours? I'd need your last name, though. :) :) :)

Very nice clone of P. humilis Thomas. I've never seen the markings like this on petals of humilis before.  ;)

A few newly bought Pleiones opened recently. Expectations very high because of a little spur. But they opened as humilis with dark red lip. Origin: China

More humilis here! This form originates from Springwood Pleiones.
