    Yep, looks like taylorii to me too. But on these really small ones, sometimes the differences are EXTREMELY subtle. I'll be getting another Cadetia shortly and will be able to tell if there is much of a difference (my next one is Cadetia chionantha, formerly classified as a Dendrobium.)

    No it is not Cadetia taylori. C. taylori has hairy lip....Its correct ID is C. schuitemanii(described as Den. schuitemanii).

    All Cadetia have been put back to Dendrobium per Kew. To me, it always will be Cadetia.

    You should not grow your chionantha like your taylori. Cadetia chionantha likes/needs cooler temperature.

    I have had a cadetia for several years that has nice growth, but no blooms. Any tips to get a bloom?
