    Susan, I believe that you have dendrobiums and phalaenopsis. Betty

    Ok pretty much, like Betty said, they are Phalaenopsis and Dendrobium-Phals are the ones with the monopodial growth and large flati leaves, while Dends have the long canes with leaves ontop. But as for the species/hybrid name, impossible without blooms, and even then....

    But congrats You have the bug now, and my advice-give in to the urges! they subside soon enough...hehehe

    Hi Sukie!

    The one with large leaves is a Phal and the cane ones are Dendro, take good care of them so they will bloom thus the experts here can identify what kind of Phal and Denro they are. Keep up posted! :-)
