    I think you are right. They look very much alike to me. When your plant is a little bigger it's going to knock your socks off. I love the phal-den crosses like this. Just remember that this one won't need a winter rest due to it's cross. You should get flowers on a regular basis with this lovely one.

    I am so glad everyone liked the picotee on the petals and sepals as well. It is such a dark color in person, the actual color doesn't come through at all. I should try a few shots with my new cellphone on this one. It works better than my dslr camera some days... And the dendrobium frenzy is so much fun when it begins. Who wouldn't love seeing all those spikes. I am beginning to thin my cattleya collection and adding dendrobiums. They are just so much fun to grow. No having to look for these flowers! lol

    I too had Dens that look a lot like both of yours. Like Maggs I also had a different name for one and the other I bought without a tag (just because it was cheap and I was now starting out ). Yours ate very beautiful. I like the intense colour on the angel one. You always have the healthiest looking plants. Mine possibly got a little too much sun at one point and all down one side of the pseudo bulb was a really deep purple. I guess when the flowers came out they stole the show but I always have this picture of nice green plants then the burst of colour in the flowers you know. My experience hasn't always been that though.

    Back when I began growing orchids a wise orchid lady explained: "Pretty orchids don't bloom". Now that I have more experience, I know this to be true. I look around and usually the plants blooming the best have a couple burns on them. Or as they are in bloom the pbulbs begin to look shriveled at times while others bloom are remain looking vital and healthy. It depends on the plant. Also, when I take pictures I have to work to make sure a yellow leaf, or something ugly like a broom or my legs end up in the pictures. Often I have to remove a bad leaf in the background. Another thing to try is taking pictures from several angles in different lights, or sitting the plant to where you can take pictures without showing the damage. I also will adjust leaves, tucking ugly ones under good looking ones. LOL When people would say they "staged" their photographs I began trying the same. I should go out and take some pic's of the icky looking plants too, lol. After owning a ton of plants you begin to realize that sometimes Its Not You! Sometimes it's a bad plant, or a "Bull" that won't ever bloom, or it's in a bad mood after the trip from the perfect environment of a greenhouse, to the store...then to you. When an orchid is in shock as they call it...I call it being moody... they won't grow, bloom, or anything to make you happy. Don't feel bad, sometimes it's really not you.

    I love the picotee on the petals, all flowers with this little "outline" seems to really set off the display of flowers.

    Wow, what a tiny pot with the gigantic Den and root overflow. Looking at that and reading in other forums, I am beginning to regret repotting my Den crocatum x sib ("Wake'' x Hsinying") to a larger clay pot. Too late now, it has been in there about 2 weeks.

    Actually, once they are done blooming they will go into a clay pot. I use a 6 inch pot and load the bottom with rocks, or broken clay pot shards to add weight. I then do a layer of packing peanuts and then a layer of pine mulch chunks. You don't have to do a big pot if you don't want to though. I know a ton of people that separate them every few years into smaller sections so they can keep them in smaller pots. Personally I like to see the big spectacular bloomings of the larger pots.

    I guess you could be right because that same plant didn't start to flower until after it got the really bad sunburn lol , so I guess you never know what your plants will do. Take for instance a little over a year ago I got heavy into orchids . To make a long story short I have recently moved to Canada so had to give everything away. The whole time I had almost 40 orchids I got to see 2, possibly, 3 of them flower and that was it . Soon after I got here my girlfriend started sending me pics of most of them flowering. I felt like they waited till my back was turned and after all my hard work harping over them like a hen and I have to see them bloom in pictures. Lol oh well right.

    Yeah, Rich gave me a bunch of plants when he moved. All but a few have bloomed here and several hadn't bloomed for him, or didn't bloom as well as they do here. You never know. Sometimes it could just be water quality or air movement. These plants can be moody things. And usually about the time I am ready to sell or get rid of one it'll throw a huge spike. lol
