    I can't tell from the photo, but does it bloom along the plant or on a spike? I like the bloom. What was the reason for the move from dendrobium to grastidium?

    cheers,

    hi bruce,
    it blooms out on those nodes in between leaves, i think its the main reason for this move, canes are also not dendro like, really spindly.

    A beauty!

    I thought that these were moved back to dendrobium but put into Dendrobium Section: Grastidium.

    EDIT: Yes I checked. It was moved to Grastidium in 1997 and now is back accepted as Dendrobium in the section Grastidium, as of 2003.

    god bless the lumpers and the splitters...lol
