    Default NOID Orchid - What have I done!

    After reading the thread a while back about buying NOID orchids, I decided I was not going to buy any either. Fast forward to today and what did I do...I bought a NOID! Ok, so here are the pics. I don't even know what type it is but it has two spikes coming out so I decided what the heck. I used the money from the sale of a few of my snakes so it was a gift to myself! lol

    I don't know anything about it, there was no label and I don't have anything else with leaves like that so i have no point of comparison to go from. Hopefully I will not blast the buds and can get a better ID based on the flowers.

    Same type leaves but isn't as large. The spikes are coming out of the base of the new growth. What type is yours?

    Miller, it looks to me like you have a Zygopetalum or Zyg crossed with something...

    Tamara's picture looks like maybe a Spathoglottis...

    I just repotted it into bark and of course broke one of the spikes! It was so root bound I could not get the rootball apart without damaging most of the roots. Luckily all the roots were healthy so I just put it into a lager pot and placed media around the root ball to fill in the pot. I'll google pics of the both suggestions to see which it resembles more. Thanks for the suggestions!
