    Lovely photography! And welcome, Senile, to our forum!

    When I saw the first photo I assumed D. senile was of the Section Formosae (aka Negrohisutae, which means black hair), since the species' leaf sheaths are covered with dark hair.

    But I looked it up and D. senile belongs to section Dendrobium, and its pseudobulbs are covered in dense white hair. Apparently "senile" means white hair in some language or other, which is why it's so named.

    Thank you for all reply.
    Rob, Please share me the cold ,because d.senile like cold weather to produce flower. :-)
    BD, It become orange now.
    Ron-NY, I mounted in a small basket with a coconut skin, well drained .
    fertilize 1 time per 2 months and water it normally, every morning.
    Actually there are only 1 month winter in the middle of my country.
    The temperature lower than usual, about 12-13 celsius was enough for flower.
    smwboxer, thank for your comment.
    Zain, I agree with you about the mimic. In my language ,we named it gibbon's hand.
    Becky15349, thank for your comment ,I also love yellow.
    cherublace, thank for your reply, I will search your photos soon.
    Lambert, The time of blooming is quite long so I made a lot of pictures.
    Andrea, Please share yours, whenever the flower bloom.
    ron, This kind is native to Thailand, can be found from the North to South.
    bench72, I love its yellow color and a pretty fragrance.
    McJulie, Nice to meet you. I also confused about the species at the first time.
    This deciduous white haired den. have many names in my language. Most of them
    mean to hair.
    pavel. Thank you for giving a comment :-)
