    Default Dendrobium bracteosum

    A plant I found in bloom last October. This is the only flower cluster (spike?) so far. Its on an old pseudobulb that is about 3" long. Three new bulbs have grown since spring and one is about 8" long so expecting great things in the fall. Doing a bit of experimenting with the camera but not quite there yet.

    Wow. This is the beautiful pink form. It would repeatedly bloom from old canes and lasts for a few months. Love this species
