Dendrobium speciosum flowering now

Big surprise this morning: first spike ever of a Dendrobium speciosum, bought two years ago and still small.



I hope it really is this one, as I've got a few orchids that resulted in other species when they had their first flower.

The flowers are on the tiny side, but quite nice. They open well and I like the creamy colour.
Hoping now to get 'fox-tails' in the next years! The plant was bought at o&m; tagged as ready to flower in two years - and that is what she did!

The flowers nearly close at late afternoon and are open again before dawn. A very light scent; flowers are 35 x 31 mm now, I think they still stretch a bit, but in general, a tiny flower.
Very nice lips, though. I like it.
