    Yes Ron, the other Dendrochilum is D. wenzelii. This species is extremely variable as far as colour is concerned. I have seen red, orange, yellow, green, and brown forms. It would be interesting to know the exact localities of these colour forms. If the colour forms came from different islands then they could deserve sub-specific status.

    1st Photo, is supposedly where the flower is supposed to emerge
    2nd Photo, a couple of seed pods and its really huge about 5" long
    3rd Photo, the whole plant.

    thanks again.

    The wife gave me the same idea as well. But I know it would be difficult to ID
    without flower. Thanks.
