    Is it a soft-stem dendrobium, Zainal? Soft stems add a certain "feel" to one's garden, especially when in bloom, it's as if one were in paradise.

    Zainal, are you sure it's an hybride. It looks like Dendr. linawianum, from China

    Lovely hybrid. First time seeing this dendrobe. I have both parents, So what is the size of the blooms - small like the hercoglossum or the size of the tortile? From the pictures the p-bulbs look slim like the hercoglossum.

    Both parents are soft cane Dendrobium at one occasion as you said will give many blooms, long lasting and great atmosphere I was neglected these plant for almost 2 years thanks Angel.

    That are so great that you have both of the parents the size basically intermediate between the both parents more than one inches little bit bigger than hercoglossum and the pseudobulb may reach up to 2 feet the good thing are very frequent bloomer thanks cattan.

    Thanks Zainal for the extra info. I really like the frequent blooming characteristic. The tortile blooms only once a year, while the hercoglossum can bloom a few times a year. The pointed lip and especially those 2 dark coloured pollinia are characteristics of the hercoglossum while the paler colour and general shape of the blooms are very tortile-like. I would consider this a very successful cross. Do you know if the other siblings of this cross have 'brighter' colour like the 'hercoglossum' or do they all have more muted colour like the 'tortile' ?

    Thanks Yew I'm not aware about the brighter color but I came across in the internet got lighter I'm afraid it's different hybrids anyway thanks for the valuable info.
