    Default My shy blossomers

    Dendrobium densiflorum in blossom but now actually it has already finished (I guess these beauties don't last too long?),
    Paphiopedilum delophyllum
    and a cattleya hybrid.
    PS. which kinda cattleya it can be? I know a hybrid means it's a mix between species or even other hybrids but maybe you can understand parents. Thanks.

    I forgot to mention that the cattleya actually smells good like a lily of the valley and a jasmine mix! Strong but not disturbing.

    Just base on the morphology alone the Den griff the plant almost similar like Dendrobium farmeri and in contrast Den densiflorum the plant and pseudobulb almost similar or exactly like Dendrobium thysiflorum, the flowers also very dense.
