    I know for sure this is a cymbidium, but im not sure what sp. or hybrid it is. It looks as if it has some Lowianum in it, butit isnt lowianum through and through due to lip markings-stunning arn't they?

    Lovely lip. Hope someone else grows this one and can identify it for you.

    Cheers,

    Good luck finding the name Jordan, I never thought of slicing my orchid blooms to learn...
    I might try it sometime just so that I could learn more about them.

    lol glaad to be of help randy, the guys at the club said last time someone wanted id they should just call it something random lol
    slicing them open, the flowers, not the people, no im not psycotic, is a good way to see the inner workings. With a simple microscope, you can see the minite pollen tubes in the collumn of the flower-it is really cool. you can also see the individiual ovaries too
