    Default Epi or not?

    The first plant i just acquired from one of my local orchid club members (first pic). It a Schunkeara purple haze 'jimi hendrix'. The second and third I'm told its a Epidendrum Oerstedii, I had it for quite some time with out name and recently named it as I was told by a friend. Any comments? Does this look like the right name for it?

    Looks nice. The first picture threw me off as it is not even close to an Epi.
