    Lightbulb i say Epi, you say...what? ID help wanted

    ok, so never getting names and just randomly taking home whatever pretty thing i see may sound like a lot of fun...but it gets old! so some help would be appreciated cuz this one starting to bug me a little too much...
    flowers vaguely resemble a Cynorkis, plant consists of reed like stems 5-7" with very short grass like leaves, flowers forming terminally, not a terrestrial

    i think it's an Epi but i just cant seem to find it anywhere...i hope it's not something else that's painfully obvious... cuz then i'll feel silly...long distance hugs to anyone who can help sort this out
    thanks yall

    I bet you I can beat you all on this one and even give you the Latin translation of this name. Oerstedella centradenia means 'I am not a Epidendrum". AL
