    It looks like pictures of Dendrobium palpebrae to me, but I am no expert.

    I did a little research today and find that this species does not like to be watered during the winter, well after fertilizing early this morning before finding this out I will now stop watering until at least spring, maybe it will bloom for me this year.

    Thanks for your input!
