Pretty orchid Lovey dubby . A dendrobium as Carol said. But to get its exact name, might be a bit hard, too many hybrids around.

Yes, this is a hard cane Dendrobium. Many, and I do mean many, of these plants are grown by the cut flower industry for use by restaurants, cruise ships and things like that. Often, no name is assigned to the plant, they are not registered and they are inexpensive to buy. This means finding a name for your plant is impossible. Just enjoy the long lasting flowers and think of someone on a cruise ship who is looking at the same flowers you have on your kitchen table.
