I have been looking for the name or at least a family for ages and could not find anything.

-the flowers on the photo are very old and are missing sepals (as I was told)
-has no fragrance
-when not watered only the sudo-bulb crinkles, there is no crinkling of the leaves
-sticker on the pot says "orchid", no tag :roll:
-was purchased in Obi, and the supplier is from Netherlands

flower: Image

Maybe someone can at least point me in the right direction~ :romance-kisscheek:

Oncidium of some type. Miltonidium would be my guess.

Do oncidium type orchid flowers change color with age?

I was thinking a cross with Oncostelopsis Fran's Jewels (Oncostele Jacks Alive x Oncidopsis Francine) and something pink maybe~

A lot of orchid flowers change colour as they mature or if they get pollinated. Temperature also seems to affect colour from year to year if growing conditions change.

Well you can probably rule that cross out as Fran's Jewels has no registered offspring probably meaning it does not produce fertile seed or no-one has thought it good enough to take the line forward.

I think the closest you can get (unless it is a recognised species) is as Teli stated. An oncidium intergeneric of some description.
