    The p-bulb on this orchid si so unique. How cool. I like the blooms with the deep green in the lip. I guess as they age the flower turns more to a cream or yellow?

    Cheers,

    This is the original form of this species.

    I loved them because it has a sweet fragrance and it is one of my favorite unique specimens.

    I have the original form of this plant and it is in pure green form.

    I was thinking that it could another species but we'd like to hear from Jim Cootes and other specialists if this a candidate species, varieties or not.

    Your plant looks like a perfectly good Dendrobium platycaulon to me.

    Thanks Jim.

    I always wanted this plant but I only have the alba and I don't have the yellow midlobed variety which is lovely.
