    Default Need help on ID of these orchids

    Hello! I bought these orchids today at our local wet market. All the lady vendor said was that they were ground orchids. I don't have any ground orchids yet so I bought some. I was not able to ask more questions because people has started to flock around her.

    I guess, I am just in for a great surprise on what their blooms are going to be one day.

    Can anyone tell me what type is this one? The stem looks like that of a dendrobium but the leaves are that of a ground orchid.

    Thank you Dr. Zainal! I can now search and study how to properly grow them.
