Default Bllra. Tahoma Glacier Green

Excuse my lack of knowledge, however, I received this orchid from my daughter and have no idea what kind of orchid it is. Or what it looks like (just green leaves).

Beallara (Bllra) = [Brassia x Cochlioda x Miltonia x Odontoglossum]
Check out these links - They will give you some information on their required care

Orchid Web: Bllra. Tahoma Glacier 'Green'
Easy Orchids :: Odontoglossum :: Beallara Tahoma Glacier ' Green' - UK Orchid Growing and Orchid Sales
The Orchid Works
Bruce Zimmerman | Orchids

It's a cross between Miltassia Cartagena
MILTASSIA CARTAGENA - Amazing Colors pictures from flowers photos on webshots
and
Odontioda Alaskan Sunset = Oda. Lautrix x Odm. Yellowstone Basin
I couldn't find a photo of Oda. Alaskan Sunset
I hope this helps

Thanks, Dorothy, for the links. When the grocery store my daughter works at is getting rid of their sad shaped orchids, they call me for a 99 cent pickup per orchid !! I am thrilled, I just got 4 chids and they have 3 more for me.

Beallaras are the best deal in town for those not specializing. Just my opinion. I have a different cross that has bloomed for me 4 times in 2007 and is getting ready with 3 spikes now and many new growths. It's an active intergeneric, to be sure. Don't have the one you cite, but I have seen pics and it's just as beautiful in full bloom as all the Bllra's.

Beanluc, I think you are referring to Dgmra Winter Wonderland 'White Fairy'. The plant and blooms look similar.

Well, here are pictures. Is this the Bllra. Tahoma Glacier Green? I know I have one of these, somewhere, just not sure that this plant is it.

It is beautiful and it sure looks like a Bllra. Tahoma Glacier 'Green', it isn't 'White Fairy'.
Does it smell like pepper??
