bottom one; hard cane dendrobium
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.
Thanks so much. I just hope I get them to bloom.
Don't stress, you'll be fine and so will your chids
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)
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.
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!
