    Default Chondrorhyncha?

    Hey everyone..... I know you guys are a big help....

    I recently got an orchid and I would love to know it's name and any help to keep this beautiful plant alive would be wonderful!

    I noticed a few buds 3 weeks ago that are opened now – and its fragrance. I think this beauty is Chondrorhyncha … ? What do you think?

    Thanks,
    P.

    It has pseudobulbs. I believe Chondrorhyca/Cochleanthes are fans and don't have any p-bulbs. I have no clue what it is, however...

    Ah..I might know..can you take a shot of the inside of the flowers..

    I'm thinking the genus Galeandra at the moment.

    Here it is - the inside shot of the flower. I'm afraid it's not the best but hope it would help a little.

    I was going to guess 'Eria' before you guessed Gal, but i don't know. It is a cute bloom with a very unique shape.

    Very cute I love the flowers. Definitely not Chondrohyncha or Eria . It has pseudobulb and I agree with Clintdawley. Look at the leaf I dont think oncidium sp.No answer.....

    I'm still searching, thinking over..... It is not Chondrorhyncha, not Galeandra, even not Eria.... what do you think about Rodriguezia?

    BD - I won't give up just yet ...until I find the name I won't give up!!!
