    Thanks, Tom, asking Andy certainly would be the logical way to do it. I guess if wasn't a good day for logic.:confused:

    The picture you linked is indeed Dendrobium subacaule. Sadly, alot of the pictures on the Swiss Orchid Foundation are mislabeled.

    Your plant looks exactly like the (white) plants commonly available here. Plants of the white form can easily be twice as big as the blue/pink form from what i've observed.

    Thanks, Jeff. Do you grow this white form? If you do, do you have any culture tips?

    I don't have a plant of the white form at this moment, i have had it in the past.

    A good rule of thumb for all oxyglossums is to keep them evenly moist with bright light and warmth during daytime. Excellent water quality, drainage and air movement are of the utmost importance.

    Night temperatures can vary among species. My plants grow aeroponically and all experience the exact same temperatures, the days are up to 25C(77F) and nights at lowest 15C(59F). I keep a few extreme highland plants refrigerated (nights only).

    You seem to be growing it well, keep things as they are.

    I had the same reaction upon seeing your delicatulum Kelly! I was wondering what the hell I was doing so terribly wrong for mine to not look as well as yours does. Great growing! (All the same I'm glad the different form size allows me to feel slightly better about my culture.)

    Marni, do you grow fragrans under the same light intensity?

    I have these in the brightest spots, but I do grow some fragrans pretty close to it.
