    so you think you know orchids?

    the impossible test....try to ID as many as you can. XD
    just to make it easier (yeah right) there are no hybrids.

    MAJOR EDIT: i realized i used some numbers twice. updated with correct numbering.

    so far, the following have been correctly id'ed:
    10) Restrepia iris
    18) Schoenorchis fragrans
    47) Masdevallia limax
    48) Dendrobium cuthbertsonii

    3 bulbophyllum rufilabrum
    17 schoenorchis fragrans
    28 bulbophyllum sessile

    Im guessing like half of them are pleurothallids.
    Impressive collection btw.

    Do they just grow by the window like that? Or are they in a greenhouse/terra? Or perhaps this question is incredibly newbish? yes... yes, I think so.

    unfortunately I have no idea what species they are.
