Help with identification ?

A friend brought me an orchid to repot. It has large bulbs above ground, and the leaves look like daffodils. Leaves are coming from new bulbs. Are the old ones shot. There are 2 huge older bulbs and 2 smaller ones, they are the ones with leaves. Can anyone help me??

Is it possible for you to post a picture? It's difficult to help without one.

I wish I could, but I don't know how.

It sounds like a cymbidium. Do the leaves and bulbs have this shape?
