    Default Dendrobium Sailor Boy 'Pinkie'

    I got this as a keiki a couple of years ago , maybe 3.I grew it on without much rest until I had a really good cane -last year - - some 20 inches high.
    Here it is, also flowering on the previous shorter cane. Flowers almost 3 inches across , rather better than one gets on the latest Yam' hybrids, I think.
