    Default more ID help

    Need some more ID help. In the first pic, the bloom is about 1 1/4" across. It is growing terrestrially. The second pic, the bloom is about an 1" across, the foliage is thin and heavily ribbed. Detailed info great, but Im really just looking for a genus. Thanks!

    The first pic looks like one of those walking iris. I think they're Brazilian. Search the site on that. The second looks like an orchid.
