    Default Dendrobium moschatum

    or rather my first christmas present, sorta... I've seen the buds on these developing and developing and well what a day to make their debut! Opened today 25th of December 2005! wooo hooo!!!!



    I doubly love this because, it has a pouch for a lip... and well, you know how much of a sucker I am for pouches.. or is that slippers...



    Cheers
    tim

    ps. forgot to mention, this is not for the faint hearted... this plant is as tall as I am... though I am rather short... well it's around 170cm... ok so it's taller than me

    Very beautiful blooms, Tim!!! Gorgeous and what a color! Love it!
    For all of the dendrobium species that i have, I don't have this one; somehow I always put off buying it. Now it's on the shopping list! Hehe!

    Happy holidays, Tim!!!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Tim, that is lovely. I don't think I've seen one quite like it.
