    Default NoId Epidendrum or Epicatt type??

    So this little one was a cutting that I got last April from an orchid that my elderly aunt had. She could not remember the name or what it looked like, but I don't think it had bloomed in a while because it was in a very shaded part of her yard. Anyway, fast forward a year later and this is what I am seeing. The slender stems/pseudobulbs average about six to eight inches long and each has two leaves. The flowers looks like they will be about between one and two inches wide when open; the buds are about an inch and a quarter long. I know it may be hard to ID in a partially-opened state, so I'll post another photo when all the buds are fully open in a few days.

    Can't really see the plant well enough but not that hard - almost certainly Guarianthe (Cattleya) aurantiaca. The flowers may not open much more than that.

    Thanks so much! It sure is great having all the expert help on here. Sometimes I feel so inadequate about my knowledge (or lack thereof) of orchids!! LOL
