    Hi Ron thank for showing us this exotic species, I still confuse when you say Den bursigerum, to me exactly like secundum, do you have any point to say that this is secundum and that is bursigerum?

    Hi Zain, as i explained, pls look at D.secundum and you would see the flowers only on one side of the spike, hence the name "secund".

    As Ron said the flowers of secundum are all on one side of the spike and facing one way. If you look from the side the pseudobulb with the flowers look like a toothbrush with the flowers looking like the bristles of the toothbrush ; thus the name the 'toothbrush orchid'.

    hi Michael,
    sorry no plant pix, its too messy and other plants next to it. if you google around, you would find some pix hopefully, even D.secundum coz plants look the same.

    thanks for all comments!
