I've had this plant just over two years and had basically given up on a flowering from it but it does have very nice foliage so was just growing it as a foliage plant. :roll:
Whilst was watering it today, I was surprised and more than happy to notice a bud, quite advanced (about an inch long) which had quietly been growing there,(I'd given up looking for buds ages ago!).
Two years and just 1 bud ?, this plant is abviously going to be high maintenance ?
But still looking forward to its opening. :D

I couldn't get Wardianum at the time I wanted it so chose this as a substitute for its similar colouring.
I think Wardinaum has that common "fresh straw" scent of some dendrobiums, but this has that better "honey" scent of others.
