    The first is Dendrobium capituliflorum. the second could be Cycnodes Jumbo Puff and the third is a Renanthera hybrid that shows a strong influence of Ren monachica.

    Thanks Yew Sung. The cycnodes was sent to me but lose its leaves, and continued to put out the flowers. I hope it will not die. I'm still new to this species.

    Hi robert,

    cycnodes and catesetums are deciduous in nature. some of them bloom before their winter rest and some bloom after the winter rest. if your plant has lost its leaves then withhold watering and fertilization till new growth appears and you could resume normal watering and fertilization,

    Good time for yellow dendrobium species. At the moment I'm on the look-out for yellow paphs especially those involving Paph armeniacum and hybrids.

    Thank you Robert for sharing these with us. Its just amazing how much yellow I have found but yours I don't have yet. Have found many Phals and Dends. though. I will definitely have to order a Cycnode.

    And thank you ksriramkumar for the new year tidings. I wish you the best as well.
