    Default Something other than Cattleyas ..LOL

    About 90% of all my orchids are Cattleyas. OF the other 10%, 90% of them were either given to me in sad condition or a Keiki that I took from a neighbors yard.

    After one of my neighbors passed away, no one took care of their yard and he had several Vandas, Phals and Dens that were either dead or dying. I manage to salvage some of them and here are two that are finally healthy enough to bloom.

    Please identify if you can because I know they're vandas and dens but I don't have a clue as to their names. MAHALO NUI LOA!
