    I'm sure someone will be able to narrow down the names though if the first two are hybrids then it is unlikely you'll get an accurate ID -- just too many hybrids out there. That first one is especially nice.

    You could private message Bob (Orchidpeople) here and point him to this thread. He is a cymbidium grower in Hawaii and member of this community. I am sure if he can identify these, he will be happy to help.

    cheers,
