    Hi. Not sure Agrem is correct. I just checked the OrchidTalk orchid genus listing and found this:

    Aeridoglossum Aergm Aerides x Ascoglossum
    or
    Aerangis Aergs Natural


    Maybe it is one of these?

    Cheers,

    Maybe it is Agrcm which stands for Angraecum. These are a genus from Africa and the flowers are generally white with a perfume at night.

    Thanks Bruce! It came with a group of assorted orchid varieties. I've been wondering what the heck it was!
