    Default Dendrobium bullenianum

    Flowers on the first cane are just staring to open: will post an update later, as the flowers should get a more intense colour after a while.

    The stripes are missing. When the flowers open they are also do not have the orange ring: it only starts showing 2-3 days after the flower opens. Two possibilities: it is not bullenianum (in which case I have another plant which has been mis-sold by a nursery, which seems to happen a lot), or the stripes develop a bit later.

    I can't find anything on armeniaca

    Not sure which it is, but it is brilliant. I love the bright color. Hopefully the stripes will come along and it can be correctly identified.

    Cheers,

    No stripes, so I guess it is Den armeniaca - I thought Coelandria has been reclassified Dendrobium, but it is hard to follow the right classification

    On the other hand, came across this description, vs. this. The plant habitus does not at all look like armeniacum.

    hi lars,
    that plant on IOSPE is a completely different one, looks more like euphlebium to me.
    here is the link from nelson's post http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...armeniaca.html

    i have both species here, the leaves differ as well, d.bullenianum has softer, wider and a bit more rounded leaves with veins more visible.
