    This species has the common dendrobium habit of flowering in year 3, that is to say it is the 2015 cane flowering now. The previous one (2014 growth) tried to flower but aborted, but this one is a slightly better cane, and last year's cane is better still, so I can hope for a better spike, or maybe two next time. Well, I can hope, can't I ?

    We can only hope of multi spikes, they don't always occur, nicely done Geoff!
