Fascinating flowers ; spectacular certainly. Not high on my list of most beautiful though.
i saw one of these at the taipei internation flora expo and went mental over it...just had to have one! search the weekend flower market ever weekend for months til one day i found a seller with a flat of young ones,,,so i bought 2 (just in case) i cant wait for them to bloom!!
yours are fantastic! how long did it take to get yours to flower?
I bought my plant for $20; at the Redlands there were plants (large seedlings) even less expensive than mine.
I am sure that your conditions will be good for your plants. What the plant loves is: high humidity, warm and even hot temperatures, a lot of sunshine and air movement ( winds in my case). This plant is heat tolerant. By the way, my plant initiated a spike after I put it in a brighter place (almost full sun). Most of its canes became reddish.
Finally, all eight flowers are open!
yours is beautiful!!! i cant wait!!
I love your new photos of this dendrobium. WOW!
