    I was so excited that I didn't notice until I got home that there was no name tag, only a tag from the nursery it came from...so is there any way to find out the name just by looking at it??? I didn't go there looking to buy I Dendrobium, I was actually looking for a Lady Slipper but it called out to me and I had to take it home

    So I have been doing a little bit of reading through the forums... and is there any way to tell if this is a Dendrobium Nobile, Den. Phalaenopsis or den. Bigibbum??

    Sure, check out Murray's thread on WHAT KIND DO I HAVE. That should help!

    Now, lets watch the bank account meeter nose dive... :P

    Lisa I'll go out on a limb and say it's new growers like yourself that keep die hards returning to places like OrchidTalk. I just relived my first couple of orchid purchase.

    Thank you,
