    I've had this orchid for maybe 10 years, in many environments (NM, CO, FL), many temperatures, elevations (sea level - 7100'), and humidity zones, but never a bloom. Does anyone have any idea what it might be, and what "conditions" I should try providing to get a bloom?

    Looks like Dendrobium lindleyi (sometimes called D. aggregatum).
    I think the trick to reblooming them is a really substantial dry winter rest. They're pretty popular in Florida and seem to do well outdoors in the southern portion of the state.

    Thanks. Looks like you nailed it. I'm in south/central coastal FL so my plants just stay on the covered back porch year round (and seem happy). I looked up "care" instructions and will change a few things I've been doing, but overall I think it will do well.
