Can anyone ID this orchid. I purchased it at a plant sale last year and I cannot find the tag. It is a dwarf with little white flowers with a tinge of green.

Well, aside from looking like a Dendrobium, I'm sorry I can't help. It reminds me of Den. schuetzii or a hybrid thereof. http://www.orchidspecies.com/denschutezii.htm Hope someone recognizes it because I want one! It's gorgeous.

How about this one? It was given to me unlabeled about ten years ago as a small plant. The leaves reach three feet, with a spread of four feet. There are three spikes on the plant and a total of 30 individual blooms.

It's a cymbidium. Impossible to name beyond that cause there are lots with this coloring (I have at least 2).

Can you believe I finally got a Den. schutzii this past year? Not nearly as nice as Altdvm's but I am hoping it will grow well for me.
