    Unknown Orchid

    I broke down at the Philadelphia Flower Show and bought an orchid. Does anyone know what this is? The seller told me, but there was a lot of confusion around us, and at the time I didn't have the presence of mind to write it down. I thought it was an oncidium, but she said it was something else, and she seemed to be very sure. I don't know why they didn't label their plants. The orchid takes oncidium conditions.

    Never mind. I think I found it. I'm fairly certain it's an oncidium hybrid, called, unimaginatively, "Oncidium Pink," by the grower in Asia. I'm still curious about why the seller at the show told me it was something else.

    Correction 4/14/11:

    Ionopsis utricularioides, in fact, or at the very least a hybrid of that and some kind of oncidium.
