    i apologize for that i've tried to take a close up picture of the flower but the shot was blurred have to wait for my digital camera to be fix soon

    the flower is just very small (maybe just half an inch) and yellow color but no scent (or maybe there is but cant smell as i have a cold)

    Hi Boy,

    Your plant is Dendrochilum cootesii. I know this species very well as it was named in my honour in 1997.
    All the best,

    Jim Cootes

    It would be great to see a better photo of the bloom. I'm sure Jim would know the plant that is named after him. That would be nice ! Have Fun,Rich

    I looked it up and not only found a pic of the entire plant in bloom...but it's namesake was holding it. How do you get something like that named after you? Did you find it? Too interesting....

    i was choosing between another native bulbo and this one but decided to choose this one considering i've got one bulbo already. never know that this was named after Mr. Jim Cootes until now

    btw this was bought from a trader at the Lung Center from nueva vizcaya last sunday
