It's impossible to ID and orchid merely form a picture of leaves. The identification of orchid species requires careful comparison of all plant parts, including flowers, to a botanical description. It can't be done just by looking at a picture of leaves. i suggest flowering this plant then contacting an orchid taxonomist.

This is off the topic for this thread however.

G'Day Zaeem

I'm with Kmarch not like any cymbidium I've ever seen wrong shaped leaf.

Cheers
Bernie

I suppose it could be a paph. It would be good to see a better view of the base of the plant to see if there are pseudobulbs under there or anything like that.

LOL, we are not identifying MY plant I think you should take more pictures of it and, like kmarch said close-ups, to see if there are possibly any pseudobulbs.

I don't know a wide range of orchids. But this looks like a lily to me. It reminds me of my Agapanthas. Maybe move it to brighter light.

I have a cymbidium aloifolium with leaves a bit like that, sort of fleshy. But more upright.

zaeem, just a few things:
1) Instead of starting anew thread for this it would be best to make further posts in the existing thread. I've moved these posts to your other thread on this topic.

2) You've posted this thread in the "Pests and Diseases" section but the topic is not orchid pests or diseases. Before starting a new thread, please take a few minutes and make sure you're posting it in the correct section.

2) I see you have posted questions in the photo gallery. That's not a good place to post questions as new image gallery posts do not show up along with other new posts. It's usually est to post questions in threads.
