    Default Orchid Guessing game

    I am a bit upset. This was purchased as Epigeneium amplum and it is the first time blooming. It is not that species...I suspect I know what it is.....who would want to take a crack at guessing? Give me genus and species please

    not a bad one either but I grew this out for 3 years to get it to bloom and it is not what I wanted...a keeper but I still want amplum !!!!! I had a small seedling of amplum and replaced it with this, which was larger...I think I gave the seedling away
