    Default Dendrobium secundum red

    It looks more purple then red to me, but not at all upset with what I have considering that I did not think I was going to get a bloom this year after our milder winter. I might be putting some of my winter rested Dendrobiums in my refrigerator next year on occasions to see if that will help!

    Thanks Zain! The longest PB is 21 inches long. I got mine from a vendor from Taiwan last year.
