    There are so many types of those that it would be difficult to determine the actual name. Plus, some growers buy a plant, take it back home to their tropical country, re-name it, and sell it as their own creation. That screws up the naming even more.

    Thank you Yug, yes I figured it wouldn't be easy to find a name. Maybe I'll just take a photo of it and put on the name tag instead lols

    As I understand it, there are too many hybrids on den nobile to know the exact name without it being tagged. Unless it is a species dendrobium. Here is a link to den nobile (species):

    BTW- I have been told not to worry about spots on these nobiles leaves. Since it is deciduous, it will shed these leaves and grow new ones (I think. I have not been thru an autumn and spring yet with them)

    How cool! I wish I had some larger , like yours but I don't have the room. The one wish I have is to have more room to grow orchids....I'm limited by what I can fit in my mini greenhouse (and, I suppose, the amount of energy I can put into it.....after all, more orchids means more of your time needs to be spent on them. One has to draw the line on how much time they want to take out of their daily life to work on this. You know you need to stop buying when you think to yourself, " Oh no, I have to go and take care of the orchids!" This is a hobby you really MUST enjoy or your investment will suffer.)

    UPDATE remember the broken cane in August 2014, well I took everyone's advice and just put it in a cup of sphagnum moss and conitually kept it moist and this is what I got from it in March 2015:

    I've detached and repotted all the keikis and the same cane is still trying to produce another two more growths so it's back in the sphagnum moss to see if the growths will turn into keikis
