    Cool grower, pendant plant very similar to a Paraphalaenopsis, with small flowers arranged on one side of the perpendicular inflorescence. Grown cool, wet, in bright light. The flowers don't seem to open more.

    Nice plant and nice green house arrangement...I should add Pacome is also a good seller; he sold me a long while ago a nice tetraploid seedling of sophronitis cernua for.. 3€.. the plant is doing fine.. :) can you beat that? :)

    has it already bloomed? those were among my first attempts at ploidy conversion! I still have several of these, but my greenhouse is a bit too cold for optimum S. cernua growth...

    Not yet, but it hasn't died and considering all the mistakes I made with it it is already quite remarkable and a tribute to its quality ...now it is picking up well and making big new roots and bigger leaves so I am hopeful.

    That's Dendrobium vexillarius. I've a lot of them in bloom for the moment, they really put fire in the greenhouse:)
