At least I think they are in the oncidium genus of orchids.  If someone knows their names please leave it in a comment; I forgot to take notice of their name tags at the orchid show.  All I know for sure is that no matter their color, they are star shaped with that one flattened ‘lip’ in the front.  I call them the pointy star shaped orchids…very scientific, I know.

    You are like me with flowers specific names….sigh. I just wish I had the green thumb to grow them. Gorgeous.

      Thanks. I do better (or at least I did once upon a time) growing roses.

    Wow! I’ve never seen anything like them! Though the first two look like spiders to me, and I hate spiders.

      Just found out I think they are sometimes called spider orchids…but these are the kinds we want in our homes.

    I don’t know their names but they are a very interesting looking flower to say the least.

    Gorgeous, Teri! There are so many hybrids today that it is difficult for us novices to be sure when trying to identify orchids.

    The first looks like “A. Mtssa. Charles M. Fitch” and you can see — and buy — one here: http://www.amazon.com/Miltassia-Charles-M-Fitch-orchid/dp/B003O8XNTU

    I had a rough time with the second one. I did find an identical match, three times, but the photographers identified them as “spider orchids”. That name applies to many plants. Here’s one of them:

    I kept looking and found this one, a Brassia Verrucosa. I can’t be certain but it is pretty close.

    The third looks like this cross between a Balleara and a Milatassia.
    It’s listed here:

    Here’s a better pic:

    What do you think?
