    Default Dendrobium bullenianum in bloom

    This is the first time my Den bullenianum is blooming and it has only 1 spike. The plant is still immature (just got it 3 months ago). I'm quite excited about it as I've been hunting for this dend for some time. The spike is very short about an inch or so and bears between 15 to 20 flowers, each measuring 3/8 inch (0.7 cm). The blooms are carried on leafless slim, upright pseudobulbs, that can grow to a foot or more in height. A well grown mature plant with numerous spikes is a very impressive sight indeed.

    Oh, Yew! My first impression is of gorgeous, exciting photographs! Then I read that you bloomed this one within 3 months of getting it. Well done! I love it (even though it's a dendrobium)

    Which of your cameras/lenses did you use? Can i ask what settings?

    Very beautiful flowers and photography. Bravo.
    It reminds me of small french candies, the "Berlingots de Carpentras".
