    Hello all! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I don't often come over here, but one of my orchids is blooming and i'm hoping that someone here might be able to identify it.

    To make a long story short, I found this plant last year on a hill in my uncle's back yard. I don't know how this plant got there, but it's likely that the previous owners of the property put it there. I don't know much about it, except that it's terrestrial, and that I have it growing in a mix of peat, sand, and regular potting soil. I'm interested in hearing what you all think.
