    I bought a flask of this plant almost 10 years ago, when in Northern Thailand, and still have several plants in my collection , the others having been sold or otherwise disposed of ; never a large plant, never more than the present 5 or 6 or 7 flowers at the most. Clearly not seasonal since I have one or other in flower at random intervals in the year . But always welcome.
    I am not at all sure of the concolor bit - I know its not taxonomically "official" in any case. However I have in the past had examples of this species in my collection with two distinctly different yellow colours in the flower - which was suggested to be a triploid variety , and also one which was a darker , almost brown, said to be a tetraploid ( and the substance of the flowers encouraged that view) but I didn't like the colour so disposed of that one.
    Any comments about densioniana in the wild will be interesting ? Does it ever get bigger ? If so I'll have to pull my socks up or look for other clones.

    Love the bright yellow color. The blooms look huge compared to the plant size, Geoff! Nice growing. I would love to see this orchid in the wild. I bet it would be brilliant up in the trees.

    cheers,
