    Default monster plants in bloom

    J/k. LC. Mem Robert Strait 'Blue' in bloom. It has 8 blooms, 7 buds, and a shed. The dendrobium has more than 200+ bloom. Can i classify it as a monster yet? hope you all enjoy it. Both have fragrance. And last but not least a little green friend visiting my palm tree.

    No, I don't have a name for it. Three years ago I got it from The Big Box store. I cut some inside and took a closed up picture. It white with a very light lip. Can BD ID it?

    I have one that is very similar. It is over 6 feet tall and has multiple spikes. I lost the tag a long time ago. I was hoping your ID would spark a memory and I could identify mine.

    Below is a shot I just went out and took of it. I stood on the potting bench and zoomed down to try to get a shot. It is impossible to get one from the floor.

    I have it growing in a 10" clay pot. It has become a permenant fixture in the GH since it is now attached itself to the studs in the walls for support It blooms profusely. I just have it tagged as "Dendrobium hybrid".

    Cheers,

    Terrific! Love the little green guy. Your monster dend is fabulous! And fragrant too? Best of all I have Mem. Robert Strait 'Blue' also and now I'm so excited - I had no idea it was fragrant as mine hasn't bloomed yet. Oh joy!! Thanks for sharing your beauties.
