    Smile Dendrobium platygastrium

    My dendrobium platygastrium is finally in full bloom. A total of 3 spikes. 2 close together with about 16 flowers and a 3rd with 4 flowers. A new cane is actively growing as well. This is the one that hangs on a lampshade in the living room. In the last picture, I just rotated the lampshade around for the picture.

    Such a pretty orchid. Love the blush of color in the centers of the blooms.

    cheers,

    It is back in bloom again.

    I may have mentioned that it lives hanging on a floor lamp shade. I have pictured it this time. It seems to like it there as it has bloomed twice there. Not in the exact spot. It is usually rotated a bit more to the window a foot and a half away.

    BTW- IOPSE shows my image for den platygastruim.

    Great bloom!
    Practical question Harvey, do you use the lamp for it purpose at all?! Or you rehang dend somewhere else while lighting lamp?

    The den sits there while the lamp is lit. It is one of 2 lamps in my living room.

    It is a CFL bulb so it is not hot.
