    Default Dendrobium Exotic Twister 'Valley Isle'

    This plant has shot off like a rocket since last summer, the tallest cane is over 5' high, luckily I'm an outdoor grower, definately not a windowsill plant. I circled the top of the plant in one photo as it got lost in the shadows and other plants. The photos were taken in sort of a rush, I'm exhausted, been working 2 jobs in between painting the roof and trim. Enjoy I'm taking a nap.Name:  den exotic (Copy).jpg

    I am in love with your denrobium! I need to get a big area together out back and let them grow everywhere. I love them they bloom so nice down here in Florida.

    Ed, That is beautiful. I have a soft spot for the 'Twisted" Dens. The lip colours on this one is awesome.
    Congrats

    I am throughly impressed with this Dendrobium Ed. You seem to really do a good job caring for your widely 'Mixed' collection of orchids. How many plants do you have if I nay ask? AL

    thanks everyone for your kind comments, especially for the growing area ,it is still unfinished, when life settles down [which is probably when I'm in my grave] I plan to get it finished and hope to post some photos of it, and thanks Angela for noticing the lip color, I've been so busy I didn't even notice the detail in coloring.
