HELP please. Identifying this orchid
Default HELP please. Identifying this orchid

So I struck gold. I found this orchid this pot, lucky me . i thinking it might be a cattleya but I have never owned a cattleya so I wanted someone more experienced to make sure I didn't get it wrong.

I decided to dig one up because it was overcrowded and not getting any light. so I'm uploading some more photos which may help.

Thank you for your help.

It does look like it might be from the Cattleya tribe, but there are other things that it could be, too. It looks like it is in a pot that held or is holding something else. Where did you find it? Sometimes a bit of history can help here. It looks like it is a mix that is much too wet for a Cattleya if that is what it is. So again, some background would help.

Wow, what luck! While the medium (which if it is growing a dracaena) looks quite inappropriate for an orchid, it appears that whatever it is, seems quite happy there. It does look orchid-like... but hopefully someone on this forum who knows a lot more about plants in general will comment - the fact that it is growing so nicely in that environment makes me suspect that it isn't a Cattleya (those tend to hate to have wet roots)... but the question of what it IS... I wonder too.

I think maybe a Dendrobium speciosum or something related.

Bark chips should be fine. I think a relatively fine bark. The additional photos you provided show that they were not all that happy in the dracaena pot. Really do need a better medium. ArronOB may have identified it. Not Cattleya, but perhaps an Aussie native.
