Re: Orchid ID

Thanks, Jim. Could be from Selby--don't remember where I got it, but Selby would be an even-money bet. I tied it in a young ligustrum tree 3 or 4 years ago, and it has adapted very well; this is the second or third time it has bloomed in that location.

That's a good photograph; it occurs to me that you could send it on to
Milton Carpenter, a former president of the Am. Orchid Soc. He bred and
sold this kind of thing for 40 years from his nursery in Belle Glade.
It might be one of his, and he might be able to put a grex name to it.
His mail address is milton@evergladesorchids.com . If you do, send him
my regards, we used to know one another well.

It's a hybrid of at least Brassia (from the long, narrow sepals amd
petals) and Brazilian Miltonia (from the elaborate and strongly colored
lip). If it has only those two genera, it would be a Miltassia. Did it
come from Selby ?
