    Question Help me to ID new friend.

    I just rescued this orchid from a local store. Pseudo bulb appears a bit dehydrated & flower is droopy. Do you have any idea what kind of orchid it might be? Any ideas on how to help it?

    Thanks

    There's a good chance it's Brassia Memoria Bert Field. (formerly Brassada)

    Brsdm. Orange Delight 'Starbeck' would be my guess. Mine died or was give away. I miss that beautiful orange orchid.

    cheers,
