    I agree with Cindi your third plant is outstanding. I would say that Bruce(BD) has the same plant in your first photo. I have included a link to his plant, so you can compare. Happy Holidays,Rich

    1. Yeah, first one would be Colm. Wildcat, but could be a different 'cultivar'.
    2. Does the second one have a very sweet chocolaty scent? then it would be Oncidium Sharry Baby.
    3. Third one is a Miltonia/ Miltoniopsis Hybrid, may be a bit harder to identify the grex name

    Colm Wildcat for the first one; I agree. The second one, as Eric said is Onc Sharry Baby. Not sure on the last one, but it is a Miltonia and needs to be grown on the cooler side.

    Cheers,

    Thanks so much for your help!
    Bruce, I thought the first one was sharry baby as well but it has no chocolate scent that I can smell. The miltonia is a keeper, huh?

    Hey Remo, when the sunlight is bright, I bet it will have a very nice chocolate fragrance. It is probably slight when not in bright light. It looks like a sharry baby to me. And the miltonia is a keeper! I wish I could grow them here. It gets too hot here to grow them well.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Maybe Wildcat , but I do doubt it . I would say Colmanara Jungle Monarch - you'll find lots of illustrations of that if you google , and some of them are quite spot on (IMHO) .
    The brown one on the right is virtually identical to Odontocidium Autumn Tints ; that is not illustrated on Orchidwiz - I should have pictures somewhere, and I will look and try to follow up. That was bred by the late George Black who was patron or President or something of the orchid Society I used to belong to before I moved house 6 years ago , (Cotswold OS - UK) and which is where my plant came from.
    As to your Miltoniopsis , it's nice ; however, I once had a collection of upwards of a hundred miltonias ( miltoniopsis to be correct - or have they changed the name again ? ) but I reckoned there were less than a dozen distinct types. They have been bred from so few original species, that different breeders end up with the same kind of thing by different routes. So it would be possible for a lot of growers to say - aha I have the same flower, and mine's called so and so - and every one would come up with a different name.

    regarding my comments about Wildcat and Jungle Monarch - I may be due to eat my words... I quote below what I said in my own posting about my new thread of a Wildcat :-
    I looked at Orchidwiz before writing this piece, and see the various clones of Wildcat such as "Gold Ring" and "Green Valley" which I have never seen in Europe - and now see why that pic being discussed yesterday was identified as a a Wildcat - I said I thought Jungle Monarch. But here's how to tell ; the Wildcats are much bigger than Jungle Monarch. I would suggest , over 4 cm ( 1.75 inch) , and up to maybe 7cm ( 2.5 inch) - Wildcat. Under that size and typically 3 - 3.5cm ( 1.25-1.5 inch - Jungle Monarch.
