    Could you post a picture of the plant turned 90 degrees?

    It looks like a phal-type dendrobium. Not sure of the name though. The reason the blooms are upside down is because it was staked after it had bloomed naturally.

    cheers,

    How cute!

    Why is that?

    Wow, I thought so. It looks like you have keiki's growing and they are sending out flower sprays!! Are the keiki's growing roots? I vote that it is a den. phal (and I wish I had been there to buy one like it too.) The smallish unusual (to me at least) green sepals are beautiful. Is there a breeder name on the tag? I would send the pictures to them and ask for the name. This has worked for me in the past. Joe

    Yep, the keiki's have roots (does that mean I can separate them from the mother cane?) Yes, it has the breeder info/website, can I post the info here?
