    Default Dend. loddigessi a gift from Gin

    Gin gave me this dendrobium a few years ago. It never has really grown much, but always has such pretty blooms. It grows in a hanging basket with very little medium. I think it is wonderful!! Thanks Gin!!

    I love that fringed edging. The color is gorgeous too. Gin did good, and you've done a great job raising it. I think it's wonderful too.

    You said it! We think she is pretty awesome! (She has even volunteered to come over and help repot our overgrown cattleyas.) She has no idea what she is getting into... lol!

    good job blooming this beauty! This is one of the prettiest dendrobium species.

    I thought I was close to blooming this one, but I got more plantlets. I keep trying but I'll try again next year! The nice thing about this species is that it doesn't take up a lot of space

    The pink color over petals is more prominent and is a selected species. Nice Bruce I like it.
