One evening I found these beauties blooming in a small town called Paraty in Brazil.

I wonder if someone recognizes them?

Arundina graminifolia is the accepted name but both entries are in the plant files.

Bamboo Orchid (Arundina graminifolia)

I will suggest that Arundina bambusifolia be deleted.

Rather than deleting, maybe just make a note that it is aka? Just in case someone looks for the bambusifolia?

I've already requested the deletion Hetty, and included bambusifolia as a synonym. It gets too messy having entries which are not correct.
