    Smile Looking for Plant ID

    This mini orchid was purchased in 2005 but the plant tag was missing. Could someone help me to identify the ID of this orchid? Thanks.

    You can not post the vendor name on the forum, but if you can provide more details about the plant, we will try to help you out. For example, did the vendor tell you anything about the plant, how to grow it, etc?

    The supplier is from Easton, CT. Since I bought it last year, so I didn't recall about the orchid culture. However, they did say it's easy to grow. This supplier is specialized in mini orchids.

    It's a mini-cattleya of some sort. You might be able to get a name for it when it blooms. Your best bet is to send a bloom pic to the grower to see if they recognize it.

    Hi Nora, Welcome to the forum...

    regarding the plant's name... it will be difficult to ID it at the moment. It will be easier to identify it once the flowers come...

    good growing.

    cheers
    P.O.P.
