    Can someone help me identify these?






    And this one is Brassovola nodosa, right?

    First two are intergeneric Oncidium hybrids. I believe I saw the first one at Trader Joe's the other day. Someone more familiar with this type of orchid may be able to give you the name of the hybrid genus, but a full positive id may not be possible. The third is a Renanthera of some type, again possibly a hybrid. The fourth looks like a deformed Phalaenopsis, or a Sweet Pea flower. The last is a Brassavola, and could be nodosa, or again a hybrid. What is the source of these plants? For what it's worth the Brassavola most commonly sold in box stores is 'Little Stars', which is a nodosa x cordata hybrid.

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    These were at UCONN's research building, but I forgot the labels for them and am having trouble with their website.

    A closer look at the leaves of #3 makes me think Vigna caracalla.

    That one, at least, is accurate. So 4 isn't an orchid, but it's a strange shape for the Vigna. I thought it wasn't connected to those leaves, as it was hanging from something else.

    Vigna caracalla is a climbing vine in the Legume family......

    First photo is a Zygopetalum. Not sure if it's a straight species or a hybrid though. Haven't had Orchids in years.
