    Default Orchid ID Please if you can

    I have had this orchid now since 2008, it was a gift from a nursery owner that he had pulled on a landscape job he was doing and did not have any idea what species it was. I have been treating is as part of the Oncidium family. This orchid has never bloomed for me and I would like to know if I am right on the family of orchid and care I have been giving it.

    Any one have a WAG on this one? Thanks!

    Jack this is Grammatophyllum species, still very small maybe long way to go if this is scriptum. Sooner or later you need to change the pot it will become gigantic plant.Zain

    I am aware that it needs to be repotted, it was on the long list of re-pots starting next month.

    looking at the P-bulbs, is there any chance it could be related to cymbidium? it does look as if it could be a miniature sp or hybrid, but then again....

    I concur with Zainal. It looks like a Grammatophyllum - a scriptum or hybrid of it.

    Thanks all for your responses, after further research with what was suggested I now feel as Zainal and Yew are right. I have already repotted this one and moved it to a place where it will get more sun then where I had it before.
