    Default Dendrobium platycaulon

    This is another one I nearly lost last winter. Making a slow recovery. I use yarn to tie some of my mounted plants. Then back it with aquarium filter fiber. An experiment to see how long it will hold moisture or at least keep some humidity around the plant. I think I'll get another camera. The flowers are actually quite pretty.

    Realized what I was doing wrong with the camera so took another shot of the flowers. Wish I knew how to delete the old one. I had the plant hanging in another spot, waiting for the wind to stop long enough that my shoulders were getting sore before noticing that I had it over the CAC.
