    I have been an orchid grower for 20+ years, but sadly do not put as much effort in to my remaining collection compared to my early days of orchid growing. A few days ago I was talking to a near neighjbour and she noticed me looking at one of the orchids growing in her palm tree and said would you like a pece and of course I said yes. Anyway she did not know its name and I haven't been able to identify it on the internet. As this is my first time on this forum I will try and upload an image and would be greatful if someone could identify it for me please.

    I will add that I live in Queensland, Australia in case this forum is world wide and that the plant I got the piece from was clinging to the trunk of a palm tree and was to me anyway, like a Denbrobium Kingianum type plant. Brian DJ

    Hi Brian,

    Your plant looks to me to be Durabaculum undulatum [syn. Dendrobium discolor], which is native to the Qld coast from Cape York Peninsula down to Rockhampton and extends into New Guinea.

    Cheers.

    Gary
