    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.

    From what I can see of the growth its unlikely to be another Australian native dendrobe.

    The spiking pseudobulb is just 7 cm high!

    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!

    That is very nice, and on such a compact plant.

    I'm green with envy!

    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.
