    Can anybody mane this little guy? It is mounted on tree fern, the name tag is unreadable but that is what it looks like Ormthopan raduans. It is probably the wrong spelling and nothing came up on line with that name. Can anybody please try to figure it out? I appreciate any help.

    Without a flower it is impossible to name the plant.

    Assuming we are looking at a small plant, Ornithophora radicans is almost certainly correct. An easily grown little weed that can be in bloom almost constantly.
