Dendrobium nobile flowers October 07-2018

Back in early December 2013, this Dendrobium nobile plant was given to us as a mystery bonus when we bought Sarcochilus orchids. While all the Sarcochilus plants died of scale infestation, the young Den nobile survives. Now after almost five years later, the young plant has grown quite large and flower for the very first time. Not all the buds are open yet, but the mystery is revealed. There are four canes with flowers, four more are mature and ready to bloom (next year hopefully), plus five new canes growing. The flowers are absolutely beautiful. Thanks Ian from the orchid farm in Langwarrin for this beautiful orchid.
