    Hi Julie,

    I love dendrobiums because of that. If you can grow these guys to specimen size or something close to that, they will bloom their heart out with hundreds if not thousands and thousands of flowers!

    Hi Tim,
    Well, Dend. gracilicaule is such a sweet cutie and a huggie! Give it a hug!

    Default Dendrobium Star of Riverdene x Dendrobium gracillimum

    More australian dendrobium orchids ...
    This is their season and the greenhouse has been reeked with their scents.
    This plant is always among the first of the aussie hybrids derived from speciosum/kingianum/related species to bloom.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Den. Hamana Smile (speciosium x Hohodemi)

    More aussie dendrob hybrids. Very hardy plant, in fact, these guys grow better outside here. No need for a greenhouse with these orchids.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium speciosum var. curvicaule

    One of the smaller and more manageable versions of the fantastic australian dendrobium speciosum complex. People just go crazy over here for these plants. How can we resist? Eventually they become big and majestic plants with giant spikes and tons of fragrant flowers, all can be had with minimal care. Mature specimens always win ribbons/awards at shows!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Re-post of the Dend. gracillimum

    This time, the picture of the whole plant in bloom. I should have taken the picture many weeks ago, now a few spikes have faded.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dend. Lynette Banks

    I don't know completely what makes up this grex but at least one of the parents is the Dend. speciosum var. grandiflorum. Lovely white dendrob.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium junceum (?) in bloom again

    This plant is in bloom AGAIN! I guess it has to compensate for short-lived flowers and they are so fragrant. What a joy every time walking by this plant!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Er...Ok, there... she stalls while checking her database... Den. Lynette Banks is Den. Eureka x Den. speciosum. Eureka is flekeri x jonesii. So Lynette is nearly a primary.

    All are lovely, Hoa!

    Thanks so much, Julie! I might have to get the database that you have!

    Hmm, Diane, shopping at my place, eh? Well, you know I don't sell, only divisions for friends. After growing them, I get kind of attached to them. But you will get the chance to buy so many orchids at premier vendors in the incoming trip to the Santa Barbara Show. You will see!
    Cheers. Hoa.
