I bought a vanilla vine from a lady on eBay a few years ago, and she threw in this orchid. When I asked her what it was she said she didn't remember what she put in the box.

Here's some photos and hopefully someone will know what it is. Blooms all summer long, often until Dec.Thumb of 2011-01-31/lakesidecallas/05c2e4

Looks like Doritis pulcherrima from Carter and Holmes.
