    Help id new orchid plz, bonus cp pics included :P

    I just bought this orchid at a terrarium fair today.
    The seller could not tell me much about it except that it should be perfect for a frog terrarium, needs misting twice a week and likes temperatures between 60f and 110f.
    And its supposed to get small white flowers.
    I know exact species would be hard to say without flowers but anything at all will be helpful
    You can click on the pics for much larger size.








    Some other stuff to get more ppl in this thread ^^

    Nepenthes inermis:


    N. spectabilis x aristolochioides:


    Drosera sessilifolia:

    That D. sessilifolia is the cutest Drosera I ever did see!

    Can't help with the orchid though, you should wait for chibae or amphirion

    I'm guessing some kind of Dendrobium, or possibly Bulbophyllum, but im no pro hard to say what it is without a bloom, i do know most bulbs want lots of water , wet wet wet.
    .
    I like Bulbophyllum, checkout this monster/ B. rufinum, and no its not mine but i want it.

    Looks like either a type of Pleurothallid or a Mediocalcar.

    well, from what i can tell from my pleurothalids, the flower spike rises from the base of the leaves...this is seen in the genre Pleurothallis, Lepanthes, and Stelis. that orchid seems to have spikes rising from the base of the leaf so im guessing it isn't part of the Pleurothallid alliance.

    Ruled out Dendrobium and Bulbophyllum because both have bulbs, this is more of a creeping type orchid. Not to say that those genre dont have representatives that creep but they all have bulbs so that trumphs that notion...

    well duh guys! OBVIOUSLY it's a Barbosella species
    no really, i think it's a Barbosella. what species though, im not talented enough to know that...

    I think you are right.
    Barbosella flowerstalks seem to come from the same place as on mine:

    Did some research about availability of Barbosella species in europe and based on that i think its
    Barbosella dusenii .
