Blooming a bit late this year. Like so many Dendrobiums, a really ugly plant with really beautiful flowers.

I must agree, about being rather ugly, but the rewards, as it blooms makes up for it.

How Beautiful! I didn't even notice the plant, the flowers take the show. Are they fragrant?


RE: Dendrobium thyrsiflorum

Jane - they have an odor - I would not call it a fragrance. They smell like vinegar with a little addition of something acrid - not at all pleasant, but fortunately not really strong. It makes me wonder what might be attracted to the smell and pollinate the flowers - some sort of fly, perhaps.
