    It's not for sale, Colin. It's in the Dartmouth collection, and Lisa asked me if I thought it was an Onc. alliance. I thought not, but couldn't offer a clue what it might be.

    She'd love to get a bead on the genus, and she'll gladly hunt it down from there. So any reasoning behind the guesses would be most helpful.

    ah, i see - well...

    for one, if its a schomburgkia, the pseudobulbs, albeit ridgid, will be hollow. in my experience, the only way i could truly discern this was by the touch - flick them, and youll feel that hollow feel, and also by the weight of the plant, relative to how you would think a solid bulb would feel.

    murray will be a much better educator on how to discern whether or not its a superbiens.

    it could be a schomburgkia but the ones that I have seen have a lot more space berween the pbulbs.
    Is that on old flower spike I see coming out of one of the pbulbs?,if it is then it won't be a Dendrobium

    i'm not saying that this is the species - but i've seen several schomburgkia tibiscins specimens where the pbulbs were actually quite closely gathered.

    i dont know the species, but for example, here is the schomburgkia from the smithsonian that i saw.

    and of course its lovely flowers

    Murray - those do appear to be old spikes. Out of naivite, how would that confirm that its not a dendrobium?

    What am I missing, Murray? In that pic it looks like it does come out from the top center.

    Hi Julie,
    That plant is definitely a schomburgkia. But I can't tell what schomburgkia species that is. We have to see the blooms before we can tell!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Thanks everybody! There aren't that many species in Schomburgkia - it should be easy enough to identify once it blooms.

    Now I've found another genus I must have...

    Julie,
    Be careful of your wantings! The schoms are known to be BIG and the spikes, well, I hope there is anough room around the house for the spike to ramble! Hehheheeeee ... They look innocently anough for a while, even reward you with a spike, then suddenly you are stucked with a giant bucket of hollow tubes that wander all over the place, with two leaves on top of each tube ... Heheheeeee ...
    Cheers. Hoa.
