    Cool Dendrobium Shopping Spree

    I have fallen off the wagon on not buying new orchids and the main type of orchid I am buying is dendrobiums.

    The spree yielded me:
    - Den. Nestor 'Sweet Fragrance' (Den.parishii x Den. superbum)
    - Den. Little Sweet Scent
    - Den. Norma Jackson 'Marginata' (Jaquelyn Thomas x Aiko Sukimoto)
    - Den. platygastrium ( x ) (mounted) on order
    - Den. kingianum (kingianum ' Sweet Fragrance' x kingianum ' compacta') on order
    - Den. kingianum but not tagged as to its lineage, in hand. A small den that I have ordered a cork mount for.

    Here are the new dens in hand, in bloom:

    Little Sweet Scent is great! I had one in my hand last spring at a show and put it back for something else....I kick myself frequently. They do have an awesome fragrance!
