    I have this den and it's one of my favorites jsut because of the unusual nature of the bloom. Kind of reminds me of Little Shop of Horrors!

    Hi Shane not only you I also need to squeeze my growing area to accommodate for the new plants, the excess plants need to trade for more spaces.Thanks he.he.he.

    Zainal, I grow mine on the cool side of intermediate condition, one in pot and one on mount...Some say it is a warm grower but some say it is an intermediate to cool grower. Try it out under your condition and please give us some feedback on its culture after few months.
    Ok Tom I let you know in the middle of this year, I was told by the vendor latest news that this group of species growing about 300 meter from sea level is not from highland. Thanks.

    Salam I agree with you but tobaense is the most beautiful as compared to ayubii which are pale, smaller flower and less attractive and difficult to grow in lowland.

    Zainal, your Dendr. tobaense is the normal 30 cm toll clon or the new discovered variety, which is almost 60-80 cm toll and the flowers, are more the 10cm across?

    Hi Mietek this is the new plant just discovered recently with the diameter of the flower more than 10 cm, can grow in lowland without many problem, the highland type I'm not there to buy for the sure it will stunts soon or later, I agree with you the pseudobulb may reach more than 2 feet.
