    Default four yellow blooms

    Dendrobium spurium is endemic to the Philippines and Malaysia.

    This variant of Vanda ustii has a pink blush to the distal areas of the sepals and petals.

    Pteroceras cladostachyum is endemic to the Philippines. Flowers very short-lived. You forget to take photos in the morning, when you get home later the blooms are dried up.

    I have not fully identified the following plant, but it looks like P. cladostachyum.

    very lovely indeed... you really are drawing me towards the light when it comes to these beautiful Vandas.. and the Pteroceras are a new one for me... is this is the vandaceous alliance as well? Looks like the leaves are a little like phalaenopsis though... and the last pic reminds me of our own native Sarcochilus...

    Default NOT DENDROBIUM SPURIUM

    The image posted here is definitely not Dendrobium spurium.

    Then please tell us what it is, and post a picture of the real spurium so we can all see what it looks like.

    No use telling us what it isn't, and not telling what it is Gin

    it looks similar to me... so maybe it's the angle of the photo...

    unless... Amy, are you playing taxonomist again and changing names of plants that we already have a name for

    Your bloom sure looks like the real thing to me... Unless the book details something I can't see.
