So I was delighted to grab a small orchid that was novel to me at the recent show but I managed to drop the tag (or this one was untagged) but either way I have no idea what the genus is or how to treat it. Please help

It looks to me like a Lockhartia. A member of the Oncidium tribe. No way to guess the species (even in bloom, there are several that are very similar) but Lockhartia oerstedii is very common. That one has cute little yellow flowers, that emerge from the spaces between the leaves. In your climate, it should do fine outside. I have found that even as growths die back at the bottom, they can still produce flowers at the top. Eventually old growths just drop off. These can be quite prolific. Each new growth produces its own roots, so that if it gets out of hand, easy to divide. Maybe just hang it under a tree - I would suggest bright shade.

Big thanks, Roberta!

I think I will get her mounted on a nice piece of wood. Wil she grow up or hang down pendulously?

While I agree that it's shape suggests lockhartia, it very well might be Dendrobium anceps, instead.

Very possible. Are the leaves fleshy? If so, Ray is likely right. Culture would be similar. Either way, it tends to be pendulous.

In no way an expert but I believe Ray is right, looks like Dendrobium Anceps to me as well, at least the one I just recently purchased a few months back.

Awesome. Thanks so much guys. I’d say the anceps is looking correct as I look into them more. Fleshy and thick leaves.
