    Default Dendrochilum propinquum, Philippine Orchids

    This is a Philippine endemic Dendrochilum species, we simply called it Rice Orchids or Necklace Orchids.

    I previously posted this plant in the forum with no flowers, taking a wild guess that I'm trying to have it again my Dendrochilum cootesii but I haven't and maybe in my next green adventures.

    In bloom and a new recorded species from Mindanao, previously recorded from Luzon.

    The shot was too difficult for me in getting a better angle but it didn't work it well.

    I love the name, and wonder where it cames from . Wasn't it Jimmy Carters vice-president - Walter Mondale , who said something about " Nothing Propinques like Propinquity" - and goodness only knows what that meant ?

    Hi Derek, I can see your plants have survived the tropical storm, two weeks ago, very well. Finger cross.
