    Default Dendrobium thyrsiflorum

    Decided to bloom this year. Boy, once the buds start to show on this thing it's only days until it looks like this. Blink and they'll have gone by.

    Hi Leigh very nice display and beautiful flowers I'm in doubt that yours is thysiflorum usually the labellum all orange/yellow.

    Very interesting observation Zain. Good eyes!
    I just looked at the pictures Geoff just posted of his plant and they ARE different.
    As you said, labellum on Geoff's is totally orange and on mine it is not.
    Now I'm wondering what mine really is..........??????
    Off to Orchid Wiz.............

    ah me........ Orchid Wiz has 84 images of thyrsiflorum and of those ONLY 1 shows the labellum not completely orange but orange fading to white on the lip edge as mine does.
    Of course, it also shows some where the entire flower is orange so who knows? I suspect every species has its outliers to the "norm".
    Makes for fun speculation and supposition though, does it not?

    When I looks back the shape of the pseudobulb at the center is biggish which does not happen to thysiflorum I'm worry that yours could be hybrid.

    I agree with you could be yours is outliers and Geoff had that plant almost similar flowers was posted I think back to 2017/2018.
