    Default ANY IDEAS on this dendrobium orchid id

    After getting home from the Taimiami Orchid Festival yesterday I found that 2 of the orchids did not have tags in them. One of them is a Dendrobium and I know it can be almost impossible to know the exact species from a picture but if anyone has any ideas let me know. The other orchid I will ask about in a few days it is about to flower so I will wait to take a picture after the buds are open. Thanks!!

    That looks like a den superbum or a hybrid of it.

    aka Dendrobium anosmum.

    Only a guess-but to me looks like a Reed Stem Epidendrum-Good luck with it what ever it is.

    I kind of figured that it would be difficult, but thanks for those of you who responded. When this blooms I will post a picture and see what we get.

    Just got back from the Ft. Lauderdale Orchid Festival and luckily the vendor that I bought this from was at this show also, species name is Dendrobium loddigesii. Thanks for all your help!

    Default Dendrobium loddigesii

    I was not really expecting that I would get blooms on this plant this year, thought I would have to wait until next winter to get this shot. Surprised when a few buds started showing. I am hoping that this is a loddigesii, looks it to me but then I am no expert.
