    Dendrochilums are really beautiful especially with they're spray of flowers. Thanks for sharing Ron.

    Wow! Look how densely those flowers are packed on, and how beautiful each one is. Goodness, I'd love to have one of those in my collection. Thank you for showing it to us.

    Ron, if I hadn't seen the name I would have thought that was glumacea. Can you tell me the difference?

    hi,
    Dchlm glumaceum is a smaller plant, pbulbs and leaves entirely different to latifolium. Flowers on Dchlm glumaceum are bigger, open wide, not as dense and much more fragrant, aside from different floral parts.
    i posted Dchlm glumaceum before, somewhere..lol
