    Default Dockrillia cucumerinum - Happy Dance time!

    I actually got this one never expecting to bloom it -- just thought the foliage was cute. Only two blooms, but hey -- it's more than I ever thought I'd get!

    Neat plant! That has happened to me a couple of times. It's always so great when a plant blooms that you never expected to.

    Is this also sometimes called Dendrobium cucumerinum? I have one also, and wonder if you have any advice on how you got it to bloom...

    All the plants registered as Dockrilla have now been moved back to the genus dendrobium
