    Oops, forgot to say, Nice Plants! lol You have chosen well, these kind are easy to grow. The biggest trick is learning not to overwater.

    First set
    Upper left: Phalaenopsis
    Upper Right: Cattleya or a hybrid. By the size of the pseudobulbs, it may be an "old world" variety, dating back to prior to breeders trying to shrink the plant so they fit nicely on office desks .
    Lower left: Ascocenda or a related variety (or a very young Vanda). If it is related to a Vanda, repot it in a much smaller pot. They dont like being overpotted.
    Lower Right: Hard-cane dendrobium (too many hybrids to guess)

    Second Set
    Upper two: Phalaenopsis
    Bottom: Hard-cane dendrobium - although a bit stubby one.

    Well, you have your answers, so I will just add that they look really nice. I agree about the overpotting statement above as well.

    Cheers,

    I did not know that about the Vanda. I will be re potting soon.

    Also, thanks for the interesting tidbit on the Cattleya. I have yet to see it in bloom. My friend and I purchased it at a local greenhouse and split it (the plant was huge). When it finally blooms, I will be sure to post the pictures. Maybe then we can determine if it is a hybrid. Though from your description, I kind of hope its not!
