    Default Dendrobium Comet King 'Akatsuki'

    Friday I was at the greenhouse of these guys I bought the Pahphiopedilum with one bloom and a sheath (http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...m-hybrids.html) because they had told me they were getting new stuff.
    I really had a bad time trying to choose, but finally I got me this Dendrobium and a Vanda that I'm posting in a separate post. The Vanda was so expensive I didn't have any money left to buy anything more, but I think it was worth the money.

    All the Dendrobiums I have had so far are white, so a nice change.

    The flower looks very much like my Dendrobium Lucky Angel 'Smash' except the foliage on this one looks somewhat different.

    A pretty flower and probably smells nice too.
