    First time blooming for me. Label says "Dendrobium friedericksianum" but when I looked it up, that one is yellow, and this one definitely isn't. It just bloomed about 2 weeks ago, so definitely a fall bloomer. I have been growing it in the greenhouse based on information for the labeled ID, and it clearly works fine for this one, too. So.. does anybody have an idea what this lovely Dendrobium actually is?

    It looks like Dendrobium nobile to me. I had one for many years and it would bloom multiple times a year.

    It does have that look... I have never had a Den. nobile bloom at any time except in the spring. But maybe the fact that this was in the greenhouse rather than outside where I grow Den. nobile got it confused.
