    Hey All,

    Thought I'd share blooming pics of my two showiest species at the moment. There's some serious competition between these magenta flowers.....

    Den. laevifolium

    I'm also hoping the bottom-right flower on the cuthbertsonii is responding favorably to some Den. prasinum pollen.....

    Awesome plants! My favourite group of dens for sure. What conditions are you growing them in?

    They're both in an orchidarium with day temps in the mid-low 70s and night temps in the mid-low 60s. I shoot for intermediate, but it gets warmer in the summer.

    Humidity is 80%+ and the light is high (@85umol) for the cuthbertsonii and low (@20umol) for the laevifolium.
