    Default Dendrobium hancockii

    I just got this yesterday at a local county plant fair, my intent in going to this fair was only to pick up some supplies that I needed to finish my spring re-potting. Decided to purchase one plant and ended up buying 3, two of which are only days away from the blooms opening. The selling point for me on this one was the fact this species looks like some of the palm trees we have here in South Florida, the difference this one blooms, enjoy!

    Would say it is a good buy. It is called golden bamboo orchid and produces a quite a show in spring. recently saw this in Hong Kong flower market.

    I have seen pictures of this species well matured with a brilliant display of flowers, I hope I live long enough to see that out of this one.

    Harvey,
    I am 67 and I have a feeling you are much younger so you have a better chance of getting your wish, but if I get lucky and see my wish come true that would also be good!
