    Default Name that orchid - part 2

    This fellow is my other unknown. Same acquisition - I bought it about 7 years ago and it came untagged. This photo was from back then. It never rebloomed. I actually thought I'd killed it, but was advised to keep it as the canes can still support life even if leafless. So I did. It slowly lost canes (I was really neglecting it through this period). After getting into the new place with the awesome light, the final cane threw a keiki.

    When the roots were long enough, I removed the baby and mounted it on cork bark with sphagnum. That what I now have. (Mamma finally croaked.) It's growing quite slowly, but steadily. I'm not sure what flowering size will be, but I think it's quite a ways from it.

    Does anyone know what this critter is? Or even what type of dend? (They confuse me...)

    The flowers appear white in the photo, but they were a very pale green.

    Oops...

    It's supposed to be currently in bloom. Sorry - I guess it is in my mind. (A guilt thing for killing its mother...)

    It's a Dendrobium hybrid in the D. phalaenopsis/biggibum complex mixed with a bit of an antelope type...any closer ID would be impossible.
