    Hehe cheers Terp... kharma in response to your question, as far as I know all the antelopes will flower over multiple seasons, so you can have canes that are 5 years old still flowering for you. Which means the older the plant, the more spikes it'll have.

    Here's a couple more...

    #5. Dendrobium smilliae, the Queensland bottlebrush orchid.

    The bottlebrush orchids are amazing. I never knew such a thing existed.

    Very nice orchids rob-thx for the share-my question is--how much sunlight does your Dendrobium discolor get etc--i have one here in Cebu-Philippines-mine in almost full sun-last years new stem gave me only 1 new flowering-has a new cane now higher than all the others-hoping it will have more flowering stems this time.
