Default New Orchids from Trader Joes

Hi Everyone after reading about the haul another OB member got I couldn't resist and went down to TJ's yesterday. They had a great selection as usual. Wouldn't you know it all the orchids I wanted didn't have any name tags. So here they are enjoy..... If anyone can put a name to any of these that would be great....
Thanks

Sheridan

WOW! nice 'haul'
no tags? dang - who cares when they look like that

All look familiar - the second looks like a wils I have seen - tho the name escapes me.
The third looks like maybe bollopetalum ? - I got one at TJs earlier this year

the last Degarmoara perhaps ?

dang I gotta go back lol

I havn't seen a lot of the nice onc intergenerics at TJ's here - tho I did find a nice Mtssa last year.

Awesome finds Sheridan! Glad I 'inspired' you!

Nice choices, they look awesome! I would have said a type of zygo for the third, but then rabbit mentions bollopetalum, which I had never heard of it!
I know the name of the last one, but it escapes me at the moment. It's on the tip of my tongue. I'll try to remember.

It suddenly came to me: Beallara 'Smile Eri'. I don't think there are any other plants that look like that

Camille - I only know bollopetalum because I got one earlier this year lol

but you are not wrong thinking zygo as it is a hybrid of zygo and bollea

My guess for #1 would be Onc. Gower Ramsey, and number 3 I would agree with Camille Zygo...also cause I've never heard of bollo! Regardless of what they are named or not, they are beautiful, wish I had a Trader Joes somewhere nearby....then again, maybe I don't!!!

They are all pretty and a great haul. I especially like the last one. A very delicate beauty.
