    Default Help identifying orchid

    I bought an orchid two weeks ago. When I got home I noticed that I picked one without a tag. It looks like a phalaenopsis but it's not. Thank you for your help.

    I would say an Aerangis biloba although I can not see the leave tips which should be two-lobbed.

    Good buy if you have it for the price of a Phal!

    Nice looking Aerangis orchid. It looks a bit dry, but could be the flash.

    cheers,
