    Nice set up with the phallies Steve... full? are you sure you couldn't fit a few more here and there though

    And that's a nice Dend spec... looks like it's been grown well with the newest growth larger than the others... course that could mean that further new growths won't keep it at the 12" mark... you do realise they can grow up to a meter!!!

    ok ok won't scare you.... it might be a variety curvicaule and remain around that size... bring on spring and the flowers and the scent!!!

    Cheers
    Tim

    I agree: that's not full at all! You need to hang a few more pegs, Steve--I'm sure, like Tim said, you can fit several more in between those......

    Cool setup though. Quite the growing space!

    here is a pic of a den speciosum i saw in bali at the adelaide orchids nursery.
    i called it 'the big monster' which amused them to no end. it was huge.
    they sent me a pic of it in bloom which i've pasted on the lower right corner (it was a really small pic unfortunately).

    so...be afraid, be very afraid

    I'm afraid! I've posted security cops at the doors. No big dends getting in here! Heck, they'll be booting me out of bed before I know it...

    Wow! Love the look of it in full bloom though. Good thing you've got a greenhouse in the works, Steve!

    All the Phal species are rooting & putting out new leaves(even the gigantea).
    No idea where spikes come on some of the species but some "spikes" have turned out to be basal kiekes.Which i think is good.
    Den speciosum is chucking out loads of roots so seems to be adjusting to s/h well.
