    Wink Deepest Purple Dendrobium!

    This is one of the very darkest purple dendrobiums I have ever seen. Actually,
    the photos are misleading...the blooms are MUCH darker in reality (like the darkest of red wines, yummy!) and at night they look like dark chocolate fudge! Sorry, NOID...would someone know?

    Cheers, Michael

    Michael, are you sure you didn't paint these ?? LOL, such a wonderful deep colour. The petals also seem to be very thick and have a very nice texture.
