    Default Oh gurus, please ID this for me

    So i dont generally like caniferous dend's. dont know why, they just dont appeal to me very much. however, i saw this guy today, and i was intrigued - its the kind of thing im going to enjoy looking at long after it stops blooming. i like it SO much in fact, that i kind of want to know just what it is. I was hoping someone may be able to shed some light for me. thanks in advance for any help.

    I believe that you may be out of luck to get a name for it,as there are literally thousands .What I can tell you is that it has Dendrobium biggibum (cooktown orchid)in its breeding.If the plant stays small in stature it will have variety Compactum not far back in its breeding.

    I have to agree with orchid-man on this one, there are so many crosses within Dendrobium that it will be near impossible to pinpoint the exact cross to get the name. I believe I have your orchid's twin or at least distant cousin. The guess that there is biggibum in it is probably a good one. Looks like you have a very healthy plant, so don't be too disappointed!
