    Hi Chemist!
    I have tried and they never respond so I'm guessing they do not know! I unknowingly joined a few Spanish speaking groups that typically ignore my posts or comment with one word...lol. I stick around anyway so I can see their pics

    The last one is similar to (but not exactly the same) as Cattleya Angel Lace. I don't have any good ideas on the other two.

    I think I have to disagree with Svetlana on this. I think the first one is an oncidium alliance orchid.

    For your first one, I've done some research based on a few thoughts of mine... I'd look into the Alicearas or Beallaras. I found an Aliceara that is very similar - Aliceara Donald Halliday 'Smile Eri' AM/AOS (Alcra. Tahoma Glacier x Onc. Richard Waugh). Good luck on finding your orchids!

    Here you go Svetlana! It's a public group and the post is from today so it should be hard to find.
