    Love the detail in the dendrobium and your photos with the natural light coming through the blooms is wonderful.

    cheers,

    This is an exceptionally beautiful dendrobium. It has a reputation of being very difficult to grow in our lowlands. Really hard to find one from our local vendors . At the beginning of the year i saw a few very puny ones at a vendor's in the Cameron Highlands but the price was unreasonably exorbitant for plants in such poor condition. However there was one plant, a healthier (not healthy) specimen with 3 blooms, very beautiful, with the lip extension completely coloured orange, and this plaant wasn't for sale.
