    Default Grammatophyllum ID?

    Pick this up today when my only pupose at the local orchid shop was to get a bag of sphagnum! I am a sucker for a good deal! So which type do you think this one could be? I am leaning towards Tigers Paw. I think she gave me the type but I forgot, I will reach out next week but thought I would give you guys a shot.

    Looks very much like Yunnan Tiger.

    Thanks, it even has three seed pods on it! I have no idea how to germinate them, unfortunately!

    I agree with Yew Sung. Yunnan Tiger 'compactum'

    I repotted it today, I used a large pot that I drilled holes into. I know that pot is large but I am ok if it spends a lot of time growing roots and foliage. I am using the stock pot as a humidity tray, I have it filled about half way with water. I figure the evaporation will keep the roots moist but not wet and soggy. Once the roots start to establish themselves I will take it off the pot. This Houston summer should allow for a lot of evaporation.

    Thanks Bruce. I like large plants so hoping it devotes more time filling out that pot than flowering. I know that is backwards thinking to most but I like foliage.
