Another blooming "Unknown"

Beginners

by James Bixler

Hi, you wonderful folks helped me ID my Zygopetalum maculatum a few weeks back, many thanks.  I now have another orchid (about 12 years old for me)  It is in bloom, as it does every year around Christmas, I have no idea what it is!  Kind of looks like a Zygopetalum, I believe it was purchased at the same time my "Z" maculatum was.  It grows very well outside all year round here in North San Diego Co. Any clues!

    Do you another picture with more open flowers? We have a red Cym that looks similar.

    It looks like a Cymbidium hybrid with the species floribundum somewhere in the background. Could be Cym. Waringah Winter, Cym. Wan-Su, Cym. Cranberry Velvet. I don't think you're going to find out for sure without further clues.

    Well, please have patience with me, I loaded the other pictures into my 1st album, which I believe is public.
