    Your kingianum is so different than the usual one, very nice.

    The buds are as pretty as the flowers...looks like there's another dendrobium group I'll have to check out.

    Ron, this is Den Suffusum = gracilicaule x kingianum. The flower shape and spotting on the buds is dead giveaway.

    I need some Aussie dendrobiums. I love fragrant orchids and this one is really cute with the spots.

    Cheers,

    Thing I like about this one is the cool spots. I have one or two other Aussie dends that grow in the same way as the ones you have been posting. (Can't think of the names this morning, but I am sure that I have posted photos of them on here somewhere.)

    Cheers,

    Quick note, Aussie Dend crosses with gracilicaule, falcorostrum, and one or two others as one parent rarely produce keikis, regardless of what the other parent does.
