    Cool Dendrobium griffithianum 'Valley Isle'

    This beauty was grown to a huge plant by my good friend, Gin. I adopted it about five months ago and love all the spikes and buds. I wish there was an orchid show close by to show off this guy in a couple weeks when all of these buds open. Thank you Gin!

    This looks similar to densiflorum. any hints on how to differentiate between griffithianum and densiflorum. flower spacing may be?

    It appears that Dend. densiflorum has taller canes and the blooms are usually higher up on the plant whereas Dend grifithianum seems to grow shorter in height and the blooms generally fall below the pot level. I'm sure there are other differences as well. Maybe one of our growers who has both can comment.

    cheers,
