    Default Another re-claimed (saved) orchid for your identification

    This is one that came from the neighbor that passed away and who's yard wasn't being kept.
    This orchid was almost dead when I got it. It grew quite large but hadn't flowered until now.

    It must be a warm-growing Cymbidium of some kind.

    Perhaps Cymbidium bicolor or Cymbidium aloifolium. Nice save.
