    Default Dend. sulcatum

    This small to medium sized, cool to warm growing epiphyte has flattened 10" [25 cm] long psudobulbs and a short, pendulous inflorescence produced below the leaf and is not much longer with very short lived, fimbriate flowers which appear in the late spring.Wonderfully fragrant!!

    Default Nice!

    You have some really beautiful species plants.

    I have D. griffithianum and the flowers are somewhat similar..hairy lips. The only downside is they don't seem to fully open and last no more than one week and then fall off.

    Do the inflorescences on your plant come from little swollen nodes near the top of the pseudobulb like my griffithianum does?

    yes they do and I suspect that these flowers won't outlast a week either.

    It is pretty, Ron. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    May i ask you how you grow griffithianum? I have one, it bloomed last year and it stalled. no new growths. it's just declining slowly. Is this a plant for cool temperatures?
