I love the flowers. From top to bottom the flower is 15" (380 mm)
380mm! Wow! Some brassias are really fascinating.
What about the fragrance? Is it nice?
Hi Dana. I smell a modest fragrance but the flower causes a double-take.
Fantastic size. These always cause me to stop and stare
Impressive! I see a Vanda with bluish coerulescens-like flowers. What is that?
Hi Arne, that is Dendrobium pierardii.
Yes I can see the Dendrobium which you also mentioned in another post.
I meant the tall plant at the bottom which has long sprays of flowers. What is that?
I See now your thinking on vanda. But this is Den. Haleahi Twist 'Spiker' Genetics are from tropical northern Australia. This plant is right at home here in South Florida. It needs protection below 50. Otherwise prolific. At one point the mother plant had flowers or spikes non stop for around 5years. Spider mites stopped it. The plant needs to be quite big to have that much flowering. A helping factor is that the mature canes will produce flowers for many years.
Wow! I must admit that I have never seen a Dendrobium looking like that. Thanks for showing this picture.
A sister plant. This one has 4 spikes all at the same time!
