Thanks Dennis. Do you know of any that thrive in the same conditions but which have different flowers or leaf shapes? I like the plant and it does well for me. It's very slightly fragrant. I'm starting some back bulbs if you want one.
D.Farmeri and D.thyrsiflorum is a different colour but relative flower shape. I never grew D. aggretatum, though I was close to getting one at an orchid show. D. bellatulum and D.senile are pretty cool and requires a dry-cool dormancy during winter as well.
The only downside to all these mentioned species is that they are terribly short lived flowers. A perfectly flowered D. farmeri looks amazing but be careful not to sneeze or you'll miss it really though if you get more then a week out of the flowers you're looking good.
My Dendrobium "Love Memory Fizz" has flowered for the first time. It was in semi-shade in the garden all summer then got neglected and dried out all winter. I guess when they say not to water, they mean it. That name is almost as good as "Korean Melody Shark".
