    Often called dendrobium phalaenopsis types , from D.bigibbum var phalaenopsis . The most commonly seen orchid in garden centres in UK after Phalaenopsis themselves , but I think most people don't re-flower them successfully because they need more heat and light than we have available for all our other orchids . When I give them 18-20C as a minimum, and supplemental lioghting too , they do well - as here seen.
