Thank you Maggi and Ashley!
They are the easiest orchids to grow in our house. They summer outside. We moved in about 10 years ago. Before that, I was strictly a Cattleya person. Here are some old pictures. I gave them all away to friends. They did not like the new conditions in our house.

Can anyone help with identifying this Orchid. It was given to Brian and I last year for our Golden Wedding and is just coming into flower again.

It has these swollen stems at the base  but it had no name when it arrived.

I'm no expert but looks a bit like an Oncidium.

Happy belated Golden Anniversary.

Thanks Arnold, it'll soon be 51 years, I can't believe it.

I agree with ArnoldT, itís an Oncidium hybrid, possibly Colmanara (Oncidium x Miltonia x Odontoglossum). Looks very happy.

New to this forum, and excited to learn! I mainly grow epiphytic orchids, focusing on Angraecoid and Dendrobium species. Iím just starting to get into terrestrials, and bought my first pleione last week. Thought Iíd share a few of my current bloomers. From top to bottom: Angraecum conchoglossum, Angraecum corrugatum, Dendrobium sanderae var. major, and Coelogyne flaccida.

Went to visit the old man today (95 this month!). He doesn't grow much now except Paphs and Daffs. This one Paphiopedilum Maudiae.

  I hope you will give your Dad the very best wishes from Ian and I for his birthday.  Good to know he is still enjoying orchids!
