    Default Dendrobium Chrysotoxum

    I am really excited that I finally got this fellow to bloom. I attribute the bloom to the new lights I bought in early March. With in a week of it being under them it started to spike. I am now anxious to try more dens that have to have stronger lighting.
    I love the coloration of this one. The blooms remind me of mini narcissus.

    Congrats! Beautiful flowers and presentation on spike. I could not get mine to bloom. I had read they are very fragrant too?

    How lovely - and looking at all the flowers and greenery on your patio does make me miss the lushness of the east coast...
