It could be that but there are a lot of other things it could be as well. It's pretty much impossible to positively ID noid hybrids.

Hi guys
I'm brand new here! I'll introduce myself shortly - but the reason I signed up, is because your GREAT site came up while trying to identify a new orchid that I now grow.

I found these growing "wild" in the Fort Lauderdale area of Florida. They are most likely a species of Paphiopedilum. I actually mistook them for Snake Plants (Seriously) - then I realized, wait a minute - these are orchids! Then I had one bloom for me. It sends up a very thin spike, about a foot tall, with these TINY flowers - about a 1/4 inch in size. They are absolutely adorable. The color is pretty much off-white.
I'm dying to know what these are! Generally they have two leaves, that are pretty much parallel to the ground, very firm/tough, and colored like a Sansevieria.
There's NOTHING like this on the web - with these tiny flowers. But, I'm sure that some of you will say, "Oh! That's.......!" If it matters, they are blooming (now) - (Late September.)

A positive ID is pretty much impossible without careful examination of all parts of the plant and comparison with a botanical description. A picture might enable us to give you a few possibilities. I can say for certain that it's not a paph because they are nto native to North America. It might be some kind of Cypripedium, which are a kind of slipper orchid native to North America.

Unusual orchid ID

Yes, you're right, but nothing I've found in the "lady's slipper" group, has these miniature flowers. Surely that would have been a telltale sign, but I suppose not. You're right about Cypri's being native, however I don't know of one that has tiny flowers, and I meant to mention that each spike has a number of flowers - about six, not just one, as is usual for "Lady Slippers."
Each one, of course, opens one at a time.

PS
I do not know for certain that they ARE native. Just "wild." The ones I have found were in established plantings, however they were obviously not "placed" there. In other words, they are either native, or naturalized.

Some paphs, one phrag and most cyps are single flowered but most phrags and quite a number of paphs are multifloral. But no matter we've established it probably is not a slipper.

Well, a picture would help immensely. Of course without examination of the plant and the bloom, it is difficult to make an ID. But from what you have described, I would hazard a guess of Oeceoclades maculata. The Oeceoclades maculata can been found growing in the ground wild in South Florida. I have seen several of them in bloom during September here in South Florida. They have very tiny, multiple blooms on a single spike. The blooms vary in color from off white to a creamy yellow. They typically have spotted leaves.

Hello,
Oeceoclades maculata is very close, if not a dead-on ID - thank you! If anybody else has any other opinions, I'd love to hear them.
Is O. maculata the only one with mottled leaves, or creamy colored flowers? I did some research online about this genus, but got a little lost.
Thanks!

New orchid ID needed! WITH PICS THIS TIME!

Hi guys
Picked these two up today - gorgeous - leaves are VERY RIGID, not soft or flexible at all. The pictures speak for themselves ( for better or for worse, right?) I'm sure that the leaf coloring, and small rounded shape of the pseudos will be telling... I hope!

It seems like Onc. Butterfly here is a link to a thread about this plant. They are one of my favorite.

It's a Psychopsis of some kind to be sure. It'll be impossible to tell if it's a species or hybrid. Psychopsis hybrids are nearly indistinguishable from the species.

Hi Fred, I really loved the Coelogyne cristata that you showed to us. The huge lovely ruffly flowers always bring out a huge smile.

Cynthia Prescott AZ, I have done a lot of searching the net since I joined the geeks last January. When I googled names of orchids that I wanted more information on, so many times the google images came up with your many flowers. Now I read above you have 40+ years of orchids.

My hat goes off to you and the Moderators and Super Moderators. Geeks is an all time favorite site.

This was a lot of help for a newbie like me. I was actually suprised that when I got my orchid it didn't tell me what kind it was. Now I know without a doubt it's a Phal Orchid. Thanks Again!

Thank you so much for these beautiful pictures.
I have a quesyion about one of the Pics.
The orchid tagged Papilionanthe (vanda) teres #2 has a great similiarity to V. Miss Jaoquim.
Is it the same thing? and has the name now been changed?
Thanks

Hi Angie, Cymthia has not been active on the forum for a long time so I'll answer your question. Papilionanthe teres and Vanda Miss Jaoquim are not the same plant. Papilionanthe teres is a species orchid. It occours naturally in the wild. Vanda Miss Jaoquim is an artificial hybrid. It is a man-made cross between two different species. One of the parents of Vanda Miss Jaoquim is Papilionanthe teres. Papilionanthe teres used to be a vanda but the currently accepted genus for this and quite a number of related species is Papilionanthe. Even so, the RHS has not yet accepted this change for the purposes of hybrid registration so it remains a Vanda.

It is a dendrobium hybrid and for that reason (because it's a hybrid) if it is tag-less it will not be possible to ID it. It could be the one you mentioned but you can't be sure and there are other things that look the same that it could be.

This is a hybrid orchid. Hybrid orchid names are all capitalized. Bulbophyllum Daisy Chain and Cirrhopetalum Daisy Chain are 2 different names for the same hybrid. The currently accepted/recognized name of this hybrid is Bulbophyllum Daisy Chain.

Can someone identify this orchid
for me? It is not in bloom, it is actually doing pretty bad. I found it in the discount bin and it didn't have a tag. I want to save it but I have no idea how, I haven't the slightest clue what it is, a dendrobium perhaps?

My first guess would be a Dendrobium, but the leaves seem a bit off somehow, as in short and very rounded. Hopefully someone can give you a more definitive answer on this though. Would it be possible to post a pic from the side showing its growth habit (stalk where the leaves grow out?!

It is a hard cane Dendrobium. (ie. Den. Chao Praya Moonlight)

At a guess I'd say Coelogyne miniata. Hard to say from that photo though.

Thank you Dave for your thread. As a newbie, I bought some orchids so cheap without realizing how important the name tags were. Your pictures have helped me a lot. Now, i do not mind to pay a little more for health and Plant id.

Dendrobium Hybrid

I have no other identification for these orchids except that the flower stem grows out of the top of the cane. They were purchased at a big box store and are only labeled Dendrobium Hybrid. New canes grew this summer and now I want to rebloom but am confused about their needs during dormancy, i.e., cooler temperatures, less light, less or no water. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can your post a picture of the Den? There are so many different Dens with different growing requirements a picture would certainly help.

If the flowers only come from the top of the cane I would think most likely a Phalaenanthe type.

Epiphyte orchids

Hi, I joined yesterday and realised that I don't even know the species names of my orchids. Since moving to Thailand three years ago I have been sporadically buying orchids, the most expensive was about $5.- No way are any of them labelled, they are just 'orchids'. I treated them all the same, potted up in coconut shells with coconut chippings as a growing media, half shadow, rain water every day and liquid feed every week. They did very well.
I built a dog pound which means that some of them are now getting no sun at all. It is getting cold now (16C this morning) meaning that the flowering buds are not moving, no new shoots are developing and that out of 25 plants only two are blooming now. So how do I ID the plants? I knew all the wild growing Swiss species, north of the Alps anyway but these Thai hybrids have me stymied, I should like to get everything optimal (potting medium, sun exposure, fertiliser and watering) before it gets warm again.
Most orchid have very nice pictures of the flowers in close up, but there are obvious differences even when there are no flowers. So I enclose a couple of pictures and am asking if there is a website for IDing orchids without flowers? I looked for an hour this morning. Not very good fotos I'm afraid.

The first looks like a dendrobium and the second looks like an oncidium
