    Dendrobium draconis was one of the first orchids I had 42 years ago, and the first I killed. Lovely representative of a lovely species, but it always makes me a little sad.

    Good to hear fond memories about this sp. Sorry to hear about its loss. Wish I was your locality. I could give you a cutting.

    Quite a good colour in tge throat, here. This species is often a disappointment, since draconis = dragon, and dragons breathe fire. But even in the wild, the several examples of this I saw in flower , when I was in Thailand in March, had rather wishy-washy yellowish- orange throats. A cool fire ! Of course the person to blame for all this is the botanist who named the species. Went a bit OTT I think.
    I tell myself "get over it man"..... But that's hard to do, since thisis not a free floweing dendrobium, and has few other obvious charms. What a grouch I am today, must have got out of bed thw wrong side.
