    It is that clump that you see about two feet inside the gate in my house.

    I guessed the right genus (cymbidium), as it was the closest to real name doesn’t deserve .....or it didn’t worth.
    I have to defend my guess......LOL

    that you knew the generic name, because Cymbidium is not from South America.

    yes, they're not from south America, but we have many of them growing here. And besides that I'm very studious. I have three hybrids (that I don't know the names), but they need much more cold that we have in my city to get in bloom. I'm trying with some cold water near the blooming time.
    I loved the game, thanks, please more.
