    I find that I posted a pic of this with perhaps its first flower for me, in January. Since then it has completed a new and better cane, and as shown has 3 flowers.
    This section of Dendrobium (formosa) has very long lasting flowers ( D.Formidible I p;robably showed kin May or early June, is still in flower with the same flowers, although looking a bit shabby now ). The plant is not yet full sized, so I look forward toi better things yet.

    Very nice Hybrid. Most of the hybrids from section formosae are spectacular.
