    Default 2 little ones for ID

    Hi all.
    Hope you don't mind helping to ID these 2.
    The little pink one is in a 4" pot and just appeared.Very hard to see the tiny bud amongst the others.It has no tag or number but flowered last year.
    The yellow one seems to be a kiki that has flowered out of season. I have a few big pots of this one but no name either.Any help would be appreciated.
    John

    Both are dendrobium plants, but other than that, I don't recognize the bloom. I like the white one. Very clean white with good shape.

    Cheers,

    The first pink dendrobium is a D. moniliforme hybrid. Have no idea about the second.

    Hi all..Thanks again for your comments.
    pitik101,it is a flower keiki.Some of my dens do that if the season has been out of sinc.This year it has been the wet with not much heat.Maybe that is the reason.I won't pull it off the cane yet but will wait to see what it does.
    clintdawley, your help has steered me to No.153 on the first catalogue.Much appreciated.John
