    Default Dendrobium cucullatum in bloom

    Hello all, my Dendrobium cucullatum is finally in bloom, it is almost a month and half late than usual ! This specie has been called with many names like Den. aphyllum or Den. pierdii, but they are wrong as Den. aphyllum is a different specie, whereas pierdii is classified as cucullatum. This plant came to me with just one pseudobulb and one new growth. Now after 4 years in my greenhouse, it produced 5 new growths this year which are all flowering, an amazing display, I hope this plant becomes a specimen, in a couple of years.

    Thank you everyone, yes the plant is enjoying all the care it gets, but it is more happy to respond to that by blooming so profusely, I like the the plants that reward their owners LOL !

    Lovely..Im not surprised many ppl confuse it with an aphyllum as they look similar, although on closer examination the aphyllum has a stronger purple on the dorsal and lateral sepals and petals whereas on the cucullatum the sepals and petals look almost white ( from your photo it looks like a very very light hint of purple) and the purple is confined mostly to striations on the inner lip..
