    Default Cymbidium aloifolium?

    This was given to me and I was under the impression that it was an atropurpureum until the blooms came out. I did my research and the closest match that I can find is Cym. aloifolium. Any comments or proper ID will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for looking

    Very pretty blooms! It does seem like aloifolium, but would leave it to the experts to confirm.
