    Default Dendrobium Mini Snowflakes (aberrans x johnsoniae)

    A relatively tiny plant at 9". The latouria section of dendrobiums can get really BIG. This one is in a 4" pot and I'm still learning that darned new camera so this isn't the best shot. This is one of those plants that I grew from a seedling (my vote in the poll).

    Very Pretty but I am partial to Dends. Any Fragrance, it looks like it smells sweet.

    I agree with Joan - I like the setting and the orchid! How long did it take growing from a seedling till bloom? It is a very elegant orchid plant and bloom.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, all. It took a little over two years to get this big from a tiny 2" pot.

    There is no scent at all. I believe most of the plants (if not all) from the Latouria section are scent-free.

    Very nice, Clint! I have a johnsoniae, but it's mounted and I think it would prefer a bit more water than it gets.

    I'd love a close-up of the flowers if you have a chance and your camera is agreeable...

    Julie,

    Here you go. These do seem to really love water. Moreso than a dend-phal type...
