    Default Your favorite Dendrobium section?

    I think the more I grow various types of Dends, the more the Latouria section stands out--lower light, more moderate temps, long-lasting flowers (the flowers of my D. Roy Tokunaga last for 5 months), grotesquely-beautiful flowers. I find them easy growers and I love them!

    Section Dendrobium is correct for moniliforme.

    Most of our dends come from austrailia, and with the wide range of colours are very popular.

    I missed this poll the first time around. I wanted to vote for Spatulata - I've loved the antelope ears since I saw my first Dendrobium, but I had to cave and vote for Latouria. They're just so weird and alien I can't get enough of them!

    I voted for Latouria! (Since I don't have many dendrobiums, I googled all the options in this poll and picked my favorite!) The Latouria are the most unique looking! I also didn't know where I would put the Dendrobium Senile, which is one of the only dendrobium I have, and just about the cutest little thing I have ever seen in my life.

    I picked "other" because my fav. section is Stachyobium. But also Latourea I like a lot.

    I don't have a favourite and i love all the dendrobium species. But I'll go with section 'Dendrobium' because it's one of the bigger section and nearly almost 95% of the spcies have attractive and long lasting flowers. And wide range of color; golden yellow, orange, lime, white, purple, rose, etc.
