    Default Any idea what these orchids are, even the general species?

    I bought these little guys from my local home improvement store for $1, because they were going to throw them out, and I threw out the plastic bag that told you what they were. I do realize how stupid that was; but in my defense; I really never expected them to live, but now they all have new growth. The leaves are only about the size of my finger, and I dont know if these are miniatures or just small plants? I have 4 of these little guys, three look the same, and then one is bigger and bulbier? They look like bulbophyllum? Anybody have any idea?

    It's Cattleya could be hybrid or species, very nice and healthy clumps. Congrats.

    Yes, I agree with Zain. They look like Cattleya.

    If this is as big as they get, they could have a Laelia parent(s). Laelia are for the most part, small or miniature Cattleya. They come from Brasil and other nearby countries.
