    Question Can you identify this Dendrobium?

    This is a noid dendrobium I got last year and is blooming wonderfully right now with 2 spikes. It is a deep burgundy red, but the back side of the blooms are light yellow. The stems of the plant are quite thick and the leaves show a
    slight veining pattern, especially young/new leaves before they turn darker.
    Would any of you be able to identify it? The blooms are about 2 inches in diameter. Thank you!

    I don't know the name, but it's very pretty. The veins you see are the colors the plant makes to give it's flowers color. Some phals make color in their roots...it's always fun to repot and find pinkish or red roots.

    It looks very much like Den. Suzanne Neil, Den. Sampran Brown, search the sites of some big thai orchid sellers and you will definitely find it.

    Jokes aside, the color is not in the purple spectrum whatsoever, but RED.
