    I recently received three orchids with no ID but pictures of their blooms. Can anyone help me ID them?
    My guess is are
    Dendrobium bigibbum compactum
    Tolumnia pink panther
    Sophorcattyela crystelle smith 'Aileen' or sophorcattyela crystelle smith 'Nathans reward'

    Jai, here is my Dendrobium bigibbum plant. Does your plant look similar?

    Very similar(almost exact) kelly except the flowers or not all pink. Instead they are white with a dark purple/pink center, I googled bigibbum crosses and the closest match was bigibbum var compactum. How tall is your largest bulb?

    The longest is about 6 inches but most are 4 inches or less.
