    Default Any leads for an ID on this?

    Picked up on clearance out of bloom, no tag. It has bloomed now, I love it, but have no idea where to start on an ID. Any suggestions to steer me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks.

    That's certainly a lovely one! Not sure about ID not noid or not it's still really pretty. It looks like a miltassia but not sure the exact name.

    Very Nice Buy. I've never seen one quite that color, darker golden yellow yes, but not that pretty shade. Of course it may darken as it ages.. I agree that it could be a Mtssa, can you post a picture of the whole plant by itself, would like to see the pbulbs.

    Wow Master Gin, thanks! That certainly looks like an exact match. I'll do a little more research to try to confirm.

    Diane-
    Here is a shot of the entire plant. The pseudobulbs are long and slender.

    The plant certainly looks like a Mtssa. And Gin's photo looks very similar. I'd say you got yourself a good buy!!
