Dendrobium garrettii

A real nice mini! Got this in the summer, it nearly died and dropped 60% of it's leaves, and then proceeded to put out 15 spikes. Lots of the flowers seem a bit malformed, with smaller petals than normal. I'm suspecting this is due to irregular watering. Flowers are only around 0.5" but I really enjoy how they are held on thin spikes high above the 1" bulbs. In full bloom, I'm invisioning something like a little purple orchid cloud. For now, here are some macros!

This is supposedly deciduous. Mine is in spike now but has no leaves.

I've never heard to this one, but that is one sweet plant.

Like it lots!

I knew you'd enjoy this one, Kevin :) I'll post a pic of the whole thing once it gets more buds open

Thanks everyone - as promised here are some more complete plant shots. Man it is hard to take pics of flower clusters - looks to me like a chaotic mess. It looks much better in reality - honest!
