    Default Dendrobium Aussie

    I came home and found this guy in bloom! I really don't know what I did to make it like me, but it has about 6+ spikes coming besides the one in bloom right now, so when it is REALLY blooming, I'll take more pictures. So far, here is what I have. And, I thought it was fragrant, but maybe not. We'll see!

    Unfortunately, I don't know - that's all the tag says (at least what portion of it I can see). I might try and fish out the tag and see if there are any scribbles on it as to which one.

    Meredith,

    At a recent orchid society meeting, someone happened to mention that many flowering plants, including some orchids, do not emit a fragrance until most of its flowers are open. I've noticed this to be the case with some of my orchids.

    If only a few flowers are open, you might want to wait until more flowers are open to see if there is a fragrance.

    Congrats, Meredith! That first photo is stunning! It's very hard to shoot white flowers. Nice job!

    It looks like there's some Den. falcorostrum in there as well. Of course that harldly narrows the list...most of the Den. Aussie [whatever] have falcorostrum and kingianum!

    Thank you! I didn't quite know how to go about it with as "bright" a flower as it is - and most of the pictures developed without any differentiation on the flower, but this one posted actually looked nice!

    Regarding the fragrance, I'll have to wait and see if something develops with more of the flowers. I hope so!

    Meredith,

    It looks like Den. Falcorostrum. Please take a picture of the throat area.
