    Default ID help

    I recently took over a friends orchid collection and need some help identifying some. The first two pics are the same plant, one of the blooms, one one of the entire plant. The third I was hoping somebody would at least be able to tell me what genus it is. Same thing with the fourth pic. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    Hi Mcitil, Can't help you with the second and third but your first is probably a Epi. Ibaguense. It is a ground orchid that is used as a garden plant here in SW Fla.

    Second one wouldn't be an Oncidium OR related genera... the spikes are coming out of the apex of the pseudobulb and leaf, instead of from the base of the pseudobulb... I'm thinking it's an Epidendroid of some sort, like a huge Prosthechea boothiana...
