    Hi everyone,
    I'm taking over the care of some orchids and was hoping someone might be able to help me identify or provide some info. on a couple.
    There are these 2 that I think are orchids: (EDIT: I've since been told that these 2 aren't orchids, please disregard)

    And this one looks like its taken root and taken over another plants pot:

    The last one could be a Dendrochilum (now considered a Coelogyne), but can't be sure until it blooms.

    Hi Marni
    Its been a while but that orchid is indeed a Coelogyne. I believe it is a Coelogyne flaccida. I've since repotted it into a hanging basket and its doing well.
    Heres some pics of its flowers:
