Wow! Wish I even had room for something like that - have you had it judged? Looks to me as though it would deserve at least a CCM.

It's funny isn't it. I have a "Red River" which is a similar Australian hybrid, though nowhere near as big as this (!) and it is also a prolific flowerer and yet Dend.kingianum, which most people say is easy, barely flowers at all for me.

This plant is astonishing. I see that there are some very nice cymbidiums there too! Nice job!

How old is that monster, or better yet how long have you had it?

Thanks.
Ive had it for about 15-17 years.I bought it in a 2 inch plastic pot for about 2.50
I just removed the flower stems and counted about 256 spikes with about 6-10 flowers on each.
