Smashing little flower, had to Google it for more images and now on my Wish List, the fragrance a bonus.
I beginning to realise the dendrobiums are one of my favourite species of orchid.

I too would put that sweet smelling beauty on my wish list, if I didn't have such bad form with Dendrobiums.

Our two dogs love honey, so when they smelled it their tails waged but they were confused about it.

I have to be honest this was a kiki, I broke off and stuck in a modified water bottle. It was in that water bottle for over six month, one day I seen it had flower buds on it. So I took it out the roots were just green slime, washed it off put it in some shredded bark, and it produced these nice flowers.

The modified water bottle, I cut the bottom of the plastic bottle to about an inch or so. Then I cut the neck of the bottle at the flat part so it had about an inch of the flat part. Then I cut some lines into it, the idea being you want it to fit into the cup. The I place the kiki into the bottle opening and just keep the cup full of water and honestly neglected it other than putting some water into from time to time. I have done this for hundreds of kiki's.

Kenneth,
That's amazing! :shock: Wish I had that luck with Dendrobiums. I'll give that method a try if my fimbriatum gives me a keiki this year.

Steve,
Thanks for that amusing visual implant! :lol:
