    Default Dendrobium lindleyii/aggregatum

    Still paying the price for dividing this orchid 2 years ago. Last year only one division bloomed. This year it didn't bloom at all but the other one did. The weird thing is the flowers on the two spikes are different colors. One much brighter and cheerier than the other. It's not as evident in the photo as in person. If I remember correctly, though, I don't think any of the previous year's blooms were quite as bright as on this one spike.

    Looking good Sheryl! Might the brighter one have opened 1st? The flowers on lindleyi do darken and brighten as they mature.
