Default What kind of Orchid

Early this year I was given a container pg about twenty Orchids. I do not
remember what kind or how to care for them. The leaves are about three
lfeet long and are. leathery. The bulbs are the size of small dweet
potateos. It bloomed once but I can't recall much about them. All I have
done is kept watered/ I would like to split it up into a couplle of
plants.

Don,

Your description doesn't quite give the picture we need. Can you post
pictures somewhere (not on this board)? One site is
alt.binaries.pictures.orchids, and there are the free photo sites, too.

If you want to split it up and send me a piece, maybe I can ID it for you.

Are you sure it's an orchid? (annoying emoticon here)

It might be some kind of Eulophia. Just guessing.

Google 'Cymbidium pictures' and tell me if that's what your plant looks
like.
