    Goodness, it looks like it has warts! These are so interesting.

    I think it needs a short rest , although if growing strongly it often spikes a bit prematurely, before the bulb is properly made up. I also recall that it used to do well in my cool - to intermediate house, and likes it less in my intermediate- to - warm house. So a bit fussy. But we often see specimens with a dozen spikes at the shows here in England.

    - From my point of view, Geoff is right, this species requires a rest period (February-March), with lower temperatures, after growth of bulbs to bloom.

    Thanks Geoff, Daniel. As it is Autumn here in Oz. I will try to give it a cooler area in the shadehouse. A lower shelf, perhaps. Temps. here during day about 23 C. (down to 12 - 15 C overnight)

    Its the night temp' which is important - you want the bottom end of that range in in my book - 12 rather than 15. A few degrees can be so critical. It is interesting if you get the chance to walk up a hill in a rain forest and see orchids - you find that at one height one species appears, and maybe as little as 50 feet higher, it disappears , and you can't see any difference - but as you go up it gets cooler, and the orchids know the difference ...
    You can see Dendrobium infundibulum - or something very much like it, growing terrestrially, on the main road up the highest hill/mountain in Thailand - Doi Inthanon ( from memory) and it grows at the side of the road for just about 100-200 yards, as you go gently up ( you are in a National Park, so don't collect - unless you want to learn about Thailand Gaols at first hand ) . That sticks in my memory - as all my fortunate discoveries of orchids in the wild do , far more than what I was doing yesterday ! This is one of the pleasures (?) of growing old I guess...memories like that
