    Default Dendrobium thyrsiflorum & Friend

    I bought the thyrsiflorum year before last from a large nursery mail order, it was supposed to be in a 3 or 4 inch pot when it arrived more like 8 inch but with no sign of ever having bloomed I thought oh oh one of the non blooming type lol . It surprised me has 3 in bloom spikes .
    The second picture is Oriental Smile I recieved it as a gift from a good friend, which makes it special . Thanks for looking ... Gin

    The Oriental Smile reminds me of a Tequila Sunrise...I guess I need a drink!

    Both are beautiful, Gin...

    Love the thyrsiflorum Gin...well done!
    I too have this one but may I suggest that now you mastered this one you get your hands on Den. Mousmee. It is stunning and grows and looks almost the same but with a pink flush to the flower and on some, almost deep pink with the yellow labellum.
    Take a look at this link for the flower.


    Again, well done and from a collector of Indian Dendrobiums I must say...once you get one you must try the rest!!!!
    Cheers
