the first one is a begonia, i would guess a carolinifolia, or maybe a thiemei, the plant is young and i don´t know what the market is like in the us.

Thanks, that was a big help! I'm pretty sure it's the carolinifolia based on comparisons with photos. Now if we can just identify that second plant:rolleyes:

The plant looks like a Lockhartia species to me, however the flowers have me stumped. They look more like, maybe, ornithocephalus. Not sure if i'm on the right track, but the plant resembles these 2 genera's. I'll keep digging through orchidspecies.com

Good Luck! That orchid is sweet!

My guess would be that the orchid is a Oberonia sp. It could be Oberonia equitans.

But whatever it is. Get it out of that soil/substrate. It is planted too deep and will start to rot.
Let the roots be covered just at little by a string of Sphagnum.

Thanks for the identification and the advice. I'v got the oberonia hanging from the back wall now with some moss around the roots. I'm now looking for another plant to put in that hole the oberonia was in, any suggestions? I believe it's a 4in pot, there is holes poked for drainage as well.

the "fuzzy" looking stuff in the furthest bottom right is mood moss/frog moss. I just tucked it by the oberonia roots. The yellow string of little flowers is the bloom of the oberonia... hope that answers your question Judy. The mood moss is slightly yellow but turning more green as it's coming back to life(i just put it in there a few days ago).
