    Ooooo....pretty! I am growing a Den, and it is growing very well--I am looking forward to the first spike, but it probably won't bloom till next year. I love looking at the pictures this year! Thanks for posting all the information about the culture as well.

    This one is one of the prettiest I have seen. Love it! Reminds me of an orchid bonsai.

    A very nice subsitute for Den. cuthbertsonii. Nicely done, Thomas.

    Is your plant in moss? I used to grow mine in moss but now they are on cork mount.

    do you keep your plant cool, like cuthbertsonii? I have this species for already three years, but no flowers until now.
