Cinnamon is a natural bactericide, fungicide and also has insecticidal properties while being completely safe for people and pets indoors and out. Read more

kevininoz2004 posted a reply: The first three are not species, they are all Cymbidium hybrids. The last two could be species. They look like Paphiopedilum insigne, but a positive ID will not be possible form pictures alone. Read more

It will be impossible to positively ID which hybrid this is specifically. Read more
