    Default What species of orchid? Time to exercise the brain cells

    Had this incorporated into another thread but thought perhaps it would receive a bit more attention in its own thread. I do know what it is. Question is, can YOU brillant folks determine what it is?

    It is a species and being that it is one of my plants, many of you can probably deduce what size range the plant fits into.

    I wondered the same thing when I first saw it, but no, not a Neo.

    Surely this forum can't be stumped?

    Well Sadie does grow more than one type of orchid, BD, so me thinks I will need to have you make more of a direct commitment before I can say yea or nay...
