    hi folks,

    this is former dendrobium wenzelii and endemic to leyte, i believe. the growth is very unusual as the upper leaves turn orange and the buds are forming inside.
    lovely plant even if not in bloom.

    cheers,

    That guy does have a really unique growth structure, as well as nifty blooms. A complete unknown to me before this. Thanks for sharing Ron.
