    Default Cymbidium? Oncidium?

    Can anyone identify this orchid? I purchased it in a plant market and the vendor showed me pictures of the flowers (pink and white if I remember correctly and pendulous. Flower stems emerging from base of plant and having just one or two flowers per stem I think). They were shaped more like cymbidium flowers. I live in the tropics, so have to be warm weather.

    Can you post a picture of the plant?
    The pseudobulb structure and leaves alone should allow us to identify if it is a cymbidium or oncidium.
