    luminous! wow! i'll start to look for one right away. a few months ago a friend gave me a dendrochilum species (though sadly collected from the wild... goodnews is that i can say i'm a responsible orchid grower.) i tried looking for its name in books but no luck. it has smaller inflorescenses and grows only to a foot in height. the spikes emerge from very thin leafless stems thet look like a mass of green coconut midribs. almost all the stems have flower spikes..

    Great photos Ron. I managed to pick one of these up in London last month. What kind of light do you give it?

    Steve, nice pick on your part...I give it about the light that I give to my strap-leafed Paphs. So, bright with some filtered sun and moist

    I really like it, the blooms look like they are made of glass ... Very unusual. Those pictures are really good as well, I wish I knew how to take an amazing (and not blurry ) close up photo like this one!
