    Yes, I agree. I never expose it to our very hot summers here in Maryland (between 30 and 40 deg C for more than two months) but I don't have it cold either. Many Dendrobium species need much colder winter temperatures than this one.

    This is probably best considered an intermediate grower that tolerates winter cold when kept dry but may be stressed by summer heat. The closely related Prosthchea/Euchile citrina and karwinskii are definitely cool growers and that may influence how people think of this species. If you can give it high humidity and grow it mounted, moist in summer but rather dry in winter, and avoid stressing it with summer heat, it can be problem-free. Easy in a greenhouse, more difficult indoors. If winter conditions indoors are warm it is harder to keep it dry enough at the roots without drying out the plant too much, and if humidity is low spider mites will often be a killer. What is easy often depends on what conditions you can give.

    I am getting Prosthechea citrina next that a grower put one aside for me until it is ready to be shipped. It will be interesting to see if I can grow that one as well.

    I think this one ,unfortunately, is out of my league living in New Orleans. But oh how I wish I could have it.

    OK, everyone is so nice but thank you. I'm getting embarrassed now. Please just look at it and enjoy.

    Yes it is fragrant. It isn't too obvious always but when we took it outside to take pictures I felt the nice fragrance blowing into my face - nice.
