    A small, floriferous species that thrives in my garden with absolutely no care except weeding the basket denherco.jpg when ferns try to take over.

    Very nice! I like this species a lot, but I can't keep it because it eventually gets too large for my growing area.

    I'm a fairly inexperienced orchid grower but I'm so proud of my blooming dendrobium hercoglossum...

    I will show the photos to my plant. Maybe if I gave it more care.

    They are very nice, how big does it get? It doesn't to look super big on Kate's post of a mounted one. I have a greenhouse but it is not super big so I have decided to not get any plants that get really big or take up a lot of room and my light is not full sun all the time so I have light restraints as well, high light plants I chose carefully.

    By the way Kate, that is a really nice job of blooming the mounted D. heroglossum.

    At first, a single plant can be an adorable cute tiny thing. But if it likes the way you are caring for it, it may blossom into a monster.

    My plant isn't very big...only about 15 6 inch canes on a one foot mount. Last year it only had a few flowers so I must have handled it better this year. Or else it's a good species for an inexperienced grower! Anyway it's very beautiful in bloom.

    There is a small growing form, I think the clonal name is 'Solano Beach'. Andy might have it.

    Very nice. Do you dry it out in the winter?

    Yes. I only give it a light spray in the morning.
