I brought home a few beautiful new plants that weren't wanted in the office anymore. Can someone please tell me the name of this one? I think it's fairly uncommon, because I can't find any images of it when I've searched.

I think you have some type of orchid there. (The protrusion on the right appears to be a bloom stalk!)
But which one??

Thanks for getting back to me. It could be an orchid. I spent some time looking at pictures, and I couldn't figure it out. I've never cared for orchids before, but my understanding is different orchids require different care. Is this true? If so, does anyone know generally what type of orchid it is?
