Totally agree with you Kenneth, but then it's great when ANY orchid blooms.
Nothing more rewarding & uplifting than seeing buds.
I should imagine there are quite a few appearing in collections at this time of year?

The cymbidium in the photo has seven buds, we are hoping that they all bloom.

Yes Terry, we have a good library and a file of some seventeen hundred Chinese orchids photos on file. It will take some time but we are confident we will be able to name them, and I will update the post with new photos and names.

Well what we have is Dendrobium chrysotoxum Lindley
It also called Goden bow orchid, Fried egg orchid, Dai orchid

I have seen this on roof tops in southern Yunnan, many years ago

And found this bit of information:
The Dai cultural minority of Yunnan, Southern China, are flower loving peoples. Their favorite is Dendrobium chrysotoxum which they plant on the roofs of their houses. There they bloom in the Buddhist orange colour of their religion exactly during the Dai water splashing festival in April.

This is one of the hardiest species of orchids and it can tolerate a very wide range of climatic conditions. Give it half a year of rain and half a year of drought, both with maximum sunshine, and it will blossom regularly. The flowers stay for about 1 month.

The color is excellent, but that honey scent is fantastic.

Smashing flower Kenneth.
I don't think any species does those warm-yellows better than the Dendrobium family, I think they are up amngst my favourite orchid species.

We are happy that it bloomed for us, but in South Yunnan I have seen some growing on roof tops that were stunning with fifteen to twenty flowers.
