    Wow! That's a lot of plant. Very good closeup shots, Ron! I'm really surprised it isn't fragrant. Being a green flower, it really doesn't seem like it would have any other way of attracting pollinators.

    Ron:
    WOW! You have a jewel. I did not find pictures of this plant in my books or the internet. Kew lists it as Dendrobium. Please take more pictures, that yellow structure on the lip intrigues me, a closeup would be nice. What happened these two last years? What changed? What made it bloom? What size is the flower? Can you send me a kiki? No, no, this last one was a joke!!! You are a lucky person indeed! Myy congrats
