    Beautiful!!!! Thanks for showing us the wonders of the Aussie Dends Hoa! That picture of the gracillimum in particular is quite special...

    Julie, would the Lynette Banks be considered a secondary hybrid? Is that the way, the whole thing works?

    Diane, make sure you get to SBS... I've heard rumours that there will be Aussie natives at the show...

    Hey Tim-O,

    Good question. I've never heard the term, secondary hybrid. I'd personally consider it more like a second cousin once removed.

    ...or would that be a first cousin twice removed?

    Probably depends on which was the pod parent.

    Thanks everyone (Julie, Tim, Diane, Ellie ...) for looking although the Aussie Outback dendrobium safari is not quite over yet. Another set of aussie dends are putting out vigorous spikes! I am glad you guys like them since I like them too. These are easy plants and you can get a lot of mileage out of them. And if I get my way, we could also have an Indo-Asian dendrobium show as well!
    I have never heard of secondary hybrid although that makes sense for the Lynette Banks. I have seen this done a lot with paph species lately with all those "recent" discoveries but they never called these crosses "scondary" hybrids.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium (Dockrillia) striolatum

    Our australian orchid safari is not quite over yet. A delightful species with highly fragrant flowers despite tiny size of the blooms! They smell like sweet honey!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium Eureka Yellow x Dendrobium speciosum grandiflorum

    Large and dark yellow speciosum-style flowers without being the space hog of Dendrobium speciosum and it blooms when very young!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium Delicatum var. kestevenii

    A beautiful australian Dendrobium delicatum variety, division of the mother plant. They say it is a historical plant, collected back in 1930 on Alum Mountain in New South Wales. Strong scent of honey, just lovely!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium thrysiflorum

    At this point, we could afford a change of scenery and an Asian dendrobium safari is in order!
    Found from the Southern slopes of the Himalya to the highland jungles of Southeast Asia, this gorgeous species has long been treasured. The flower spike looks like a Japanese lantern! Lightly fragrant!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium farmeri (Second plant)

    Another dendrobium farmeri in my collection also recently bloomed with a much better flower spike. Very beautiful!
    Cheers. Hoa.
