    Here is a New Guinea Dendrobium that I am blooming for the first time although I have had for several years. It is cute, but the color is not as intense as I would hope. Some other photos I have seen show brighter flowers and some pigment in the leaves, so I will move it to a brighter spot in the greenhouse and try the “Red” cuthbertsonii treatment...near full sun.

    Very nice! I recently acquired a flask of these and am excited to get them to this size!

    not at all, got it from Ecuagenera and it just appeared on their price list, which I assume means they'll have plants listed on their website shortly.
