    Default Dendrobium unicum

    A gorgeous dendrobium with farcical-shaped flowers! I have two plants of this much sought-after species, one with flowers smell like rubber tire or crayons (what a mistake to put your nose in for a quick sniff!) and another one pictured here which has a pleasant fruity peach/light tangerine fragrance. So what's going on?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium antennatum

    One of the antelope dendrobiums! It is a floriferous plant with flowers characterized by straight-up twisty green antenna-like petals and violet striated lip.

    Default Dendrobium crepidiferum

    This dendrobium is a newly discovered species, I think, looking very similar to the D. lawesii. This species and relatives are part of the Calyptrochilus section. Great blooms in sparkling magenta with orange lips! Pretty!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium parishii

    A lovely mass-blooming dendrobium! This plant was near death a few years back and I manage to slowly nurse it back. Finally it blooms again! Very strong raspberry fragrance!!!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I am in love with the Dendrobium antennatum. It is spectacular! The orange color of the D. unicum is awesome too. Since you have two and all...you could just pack up the stinky rubber tire smelling one and send it to me! I promise to take care of it and post lots of photos as it blooms!!

    Seriously, those two dends are stunning.

    Cheers!

    Lovely, all of them. But I think I will wait on buying anymore Dens until I can get one of the ones I have to bloom!!!

    Wow, these dens are beautiful. I love Dens. I grow my dens together with catts, is it the right thing? There is one den I have (Frosty Dawn, with black air on leaves and stem) has these new growths taller and thinner, is it due to less light?

    Thanks, Bruce, Julie, Diane, and Qing for the lovely comments!!! Lot of people likes the antennatum. Too bad that the flowers are kind of small. The unicum with its whimsical flowers is another crowd favorite. The first one I had died on me but I like it so much, I bought another one then another one as the safety plant! The one with rubber tire fragrance makes a great gag prop when in bloom and a good conversation topic for visitors or dinner guests.
    Diane, it might be better just to enjoy these plants in bloom. They are mostly from warm climates and like to be mounted so they are best grown in the greenhouse.
    Qing, I am not sure why that is. Smaller and thinner canes could be due to not enough light but there are other reasons for that like the growth just starts so it takes time for them to lump up, or the roots from previous growth have died off, or the temperature is not right for the plant (either too cold or too hot).
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Those are amazing orchids and pictures. I like the orange one best, I guess because it it flashy. You know, the crow to the shiny object thing, I have going on in my head.
