    I received this orchid many years ago. It arrived as two badly shriveled canes devoid of roots or leaves. In those times getting any Dendrobium species was not an easy thing locally so I doted over this plant. It grew well and when it bloomed the flowers were the most brightly colored I had ever seen. The plant is still with me, it has survived both too much care and total neglect as well as relocation due to moving. The only problem I have with it is that the flowers are so attractive to local Densec.jpg birds that their pollen are removed as soon as they open.
