    Default Dinema polybulbon-definitely not, more like Ornithophora radicans

    This is a freebie i got sent with the Isochilus and the Dendrochilum i got. The tag says Dinema polybulbon, but the one i used have looks NOTHING like this plant, and this one looks like my other Ornithophora radicans. I think i need to re-label....

    Dinema polybulbon-for now hehehehe

    Yeah, don't know what they sent you but there is no way that is Dinema polybulbon.

    I would agree with Paul: I think this one is Ornithophora radicans, it looks like mine....well, Gomesa radicans

    I first knew this plant as Sigmatostalix radicans, but it seems we all came to the same conclusion whatever the name. How could anyone send this out labeled as Dinema polybulbon? The only thing they have in common is growing like weeds under the right circumstances.

    Exactly what i was thinking! My Dinema was a weed, thats why i got rid of it. My other Ornithophora is identical to this, the only difference being, it is mounted. How could someone get this mixed up?!
