    Beautiful Aussie dendrobe, It used to be classified as a Dockrillia but have the taxonomists been at it again?

    Exactly my thoughts on this Shifu.

    Beautifully grown Jack. It would great as it matures.

    Interesting Jack! Now here comes my true novice self coming out - is the greenery considered pseudobulbs and are there no leaves?

    Thanks Yew-Sung! I have sent an email to the grower to asked about the name. In doing research online I find them listed both ways. Maybe someone from Australia will know! I will report back once I hear from the grower!

    Thanks Sheryl! From what I have researched they are stout terete erect leaves, that is all I have seen on this one!

    I got a reply from my vendor;
    "Either name is OK as far as I am concerned since I am not a taxonomist. I don't know what is currently most acceptable for sure but probably Dockrillia is. It's the same plant, whatever the name. When I got the 'Tower Grove' CCM/AOS it was considered a Dendrobium."
    Unless someone tells me differently it will stay Dendrobium.
