    An easy growing Oxyglossum-type species. It thrives in my intermediate-warm environment and is always in bloom. I thought this flower grouping shows the flower structure well so decided to post it.

    Mounted on hardwood, daily summer water, no winter rest. This plant was acquired from Marni several years ago.

    I like the look of this one. But as usual, photos are much easier to find than the plants themselves. :(

    Fantastic. Thought this one needed to be cooler.

    Hi Kelly,

    Mine isn't quite as big, but also now in bloom all the time. I grow mine cool and fairly bright, just a little less than cuthbertsonii. Good to know it is so adaptable.

    Nice plant, Chuck. Good to know it does so well potted. Is it in a fine bark mix?

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks! It is in a mix of NZ Sphagnum and tree fern fiber in a terra cotta pot. I don't grow too many PNG type Dendrobiums potted. This one was a bare root division given to me a couple years ago and I just stuck it in a pot to get it established. One of these days it will probably get mounted.
