    Colmanara Wildcat 'Green Valley D' would be my guess. We sold lots of those when we were in business. It might also be Colmanara Wildcat 'Green Valley', but since it has the full lip with the speckles, I am 85% sure it is Colm. Wildcat 'Green Valley D'.

    It is very nice.

    Cheers,
    BD

    I think you're right. After your post, I googled it and the picture matched mine exactly. Very good, I'm impressed.

    so I can see three plants... the Colmanara, a Phal, and what's the third with the long leaves?

    by the way, that is a nice Colmanara and the Phal colour is sweet, nice colour contrast.

    Left to right, Phal, Bothriochilus Macrostachys, kingianum tetraploid

    Bottom is Vanda

    Let me know if I messed up on their names.

    Bothriochilus macrostachys, the specific name should be lower case because this is a species. And the kingianum is also a species, it's a Dendrobium kingianum. Tetraploid refers to the number of chromosomes that individual clone has. Tetraploids have double the chromosomes of a normal, or diploid plant. That typically results in larger, more substantial flowers.

    I see your Vanda does not have a bloom either. I bought 2 of them as bag babies last year. One of them died, and the other is doing well, after I removed it from bright sun light. It has not spiked, but I keep looking and doing some bloom boost about once a month.
