    Dear Martha...they are an intergenic hybrid...which 'blend' I couldn't possibly tell you but I'm sure the gurus will chime in any time now...They are extremely helpful and knowledgeable! Best of luck with them and enjoy no matter what they are!

    I really like the one in the middle. I agree that they're some kind of hybrid in the oncidium family.

    Well the one on the top right is 100% got some Miltoniopsis in it, possibly even a Miltoniopsis on its own....
    And the other? the closest i got was a Vuylstekeara or Degamoara hybrid, although, im probably a bit far off the mark.....

    Just my two cents worth! good luck, jordan.

    I think that is a pretty accurate estimate, Jordan.

    I'm pretty sure the one on the right is Odina Paragena “MI Amour” or something really close to it.
