    Default Gift plant with no tag

    Could someone identify this for me, it was given to me by a non-orchid friend two years ago and it finally bloomed, it has three spikes and the flowers are aprox. the size of a quarter.

    Thanks clintdawley,

    You don't by any chance know which Wildcat this is? These Odontocidiums are fast becoming my favorite orchids. They seem to thrive well here in my Greenhouse.

    There are so many it is really hard to discern the clonal name. They are some of my favorites as well...

    Some of the clones do. I have 'Yellow Butterfly' and it has that large white lip as well.

    The youngest blossoms on my Burr. Kilauea 'Volcano Queen' AM/AOS are yellow and they shift to white as they age.

    Thanks all for help in identifying this orchid for me. It bugs me not to know. I have a good friend that cleans several homes for the "well-to-do", that have a plant service company come in and decorate rooms with orchids and when they finish blooming they toss them in the trash, when I found this out I told her that I had no problem becoming their trash can
