    Default zygopetalum???

    Hi
    I bought myself an orchid for my bday xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The plastic wrap read exotic orchid the actual tag on the orchid read dendrobium nobile. It was the only orchid that didn't read phal. I have 3 phals wanted something I didn't have. I posted a pic of my new orchid on a different website. It was soon after that I got a lot of replies saying it's not a dendrobium. Its a zygo as I did my research on what I bought exactly I was told it was an oncidium. It really dosent matter to me except I want to know How to care for it. Needs can vary drastically. So please if anyone can help I would appreciate it thank you

    I've had to use photo editors to edit my pics down to smaller resolution for upload here. I've just been using the Finder app that's included in my MacBook. I'm sure there are good free apps for your phone that you can use. Look for photo editing apps in the app store or for whatever kind of phone ur using. There used to be a pretty good free one called GIMP that was free and open source. Not sure if it's still around or not. It wasn't the most user friendly, but if you play around with it, it's one of the most powerful image editors around. There are probably great paid apps that are more user friendly, especially if you're just looking to resize images. I found when I adjusted my images down to 7" or less, they worked here. Maybe my resolution was set to automatically adjust with the size, not sure exactly, but it worked.

    Thank you, I got my IPhone now I need to set up new device from this android to my iPhone. I'm sure once I do that it'll be a lot easier to upload photos? Any suggestions? I appreciate all feedback....B
