    Default D. griffithianum

    Love this little guy. Got him back in the early Spring. I had been worried because he just sat there for four months and then threw 2 spikes. The second spike is only about half mature. As Gin said, they close up at night only to re-open in the morning. No scent..

    Very pretty, Clint!
    I love these Dends. A bit hard to grow at times but the flowers are gorgeous.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Love its fuzzy muff. Beautiful, bright, Kodak yellow flowers. Do you keep the plant on top of the fluorescents for as long as it has flowers? What about light for the plant? Or was this placement just for pictures?

    Thank you two

    No..the plant doesn't live on the flourescents, but under them. The placement was for a semi-decent picture only Under the lights it was hiding behind big A. sesquipedele.

    So pretty, like a spring bonnet and I love yellow. Makes me think of daffodils.

    Very pretty! Flower looks a lot like Den. aggregatum, but the plant is much taller. Good growing!
