    Default Dendrobium Orchid NOID & Tolumnia Orchid NOID

    These bloomed recently when we got back from a trip.

    For the Tolumnia, it's a 2nd bloom and there're more spikes so am hopeful more flowers are on its way. Found a couple of tolumnia pics in books that looks similar but can't be sure.

    For the Dendrobium, it's first bloom since we bought it. Also more buds so yippee!

    I want to also share the pic of the Encyclia cordigera we bought recently. It was already budding when we have it and has been in bloom for almost a month. Quite surprised to see it lasted that lone as the flowers on the other 2 Encyclia cordigera (white/yellow color) already withered. Mmm, are some encyclia cordigera more hardy than others? Well, I really love the color on this one and hope we will get it to bloom again next year. (PS: sorry if pic isn't clear. Not a photographer like some of you guys and I'm taking these off a handheld as I'm using that to catalogue my orchids.)

    Any help to ID the tolumnia & dendrobium orchids will be much appreciated! Thanks as always!

    Your Tolumnia could be Ralph Yagi - I have a couple of clones of that including an awarded one which is quite similar - bearing in mind that often each flower is slightly different from each other one on the same spike. But identification of hybrids of any genus is always a bit risky - often there are many different names with similar appearance in the flowers. You could label it as " Ralph Yagi ?" , or "Maybe Ralph Yagi".......
    You have a nice plant there - remember that when you get spikes a bit longer than this they act like phalaenopsis, in that they will branch ( on a strong plant growing well) or if left on after the flowers have fallen, a branch will come later on - from one of this little bracts along the length of the stem. ( They are like phals in another respect, too - with a lot of skill and know-how, they can be propagated from those old flower spikes, as long as there some bracts which did not get as far as branching ).

    Thank you! I didn't know tolumnia can be propagated from old flower spikes so this info is really useful. And appreciate the ID & suggestion

    Have a good countdown and wishing you & your family a healthy & happy 2012!

    I have just thought of the answer you want, Bob.
    Buy her a belated Christmas present ( of a greenhouse) then you can "help her" fill it....
