I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

I don't know these hybrids well enough to give you a correct id, but surely someone here knows!
I would just look up Odontoglossum hybrids. Trader Joe's around here sells these every so often.
Example - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wik...
Beallara Marfitch Howards Dream
Also one might image - google Vuylstekeara for a better fit.

It is in the Oncidium Alliance.
Has some Odontoglossum in its parentage but it is not Marfitch. Marfitch are much more starry shaped and 5"vertical. This might be some type of Odontocidium (Odontoglossum X Oncidium). Exact parentage is very difficult to research. Hybrids can be so complex considering some are in their 7th, 8th or 10th generation breeding wise.
I would also like to say that google can be a useful source for information but I find it to be only marginally reliable. A great program for research and how to grow orchid species is the Orchid Wiz. Check it out @orchidwiz.com. I am a judge for the American Orchid Society and it is simply the best tool out there!
