    I only have two dendrobiums, and I'm not sure I like them. They are growing really well, comming back from the near death in which I bought them. I just don't really care for the way they grow. Maybe when they bloom I will become infatuated with them.

    I LOVE Spatulata, Phalaenanthe and Latouria dendrobiums, but they rarely love me back because of my cool-intermediate setup, so I've given up on trying to grow them until I either have some space in the house where it's nice and warm, but not really humid enough, or I move somewhere where I can have a second greenhouse with a warm-intermediate setup. The bulk of my dendrobiums belong to section Dendrocoryne, which grow like weeds and flower their socks off for me, followed by Callista, Dendrobium, Holocrysa, Calyptrochilus and Formosae.

    I had to choose other since all of the above wasn't on the list.

    I really have to unpack my orchid books... I have been wanting a Den amethystoglossa for quite a while. They are breathtaking when they become mature.

    I have about 13 different Dens but have to say I am totally uniformed about the different types. It aggravates me that I do not know there are different sections unless I am not understanding the poll.
