I hope it's okay to post this here ... I looked for an Orchid Identification thread but didn't find one.

I'm hoping that one of you great orchid growers can tell me if this plant could possibly be Dendrobium loddigesii? I received a little orchid in a trade back in 2008 labeled Dendrobium loddigesii but thought I'd lost it to the squirrels that destroyed some of my orchids when they were hanging in a tree. I babied the little piece of plant I found on the ground but it didn't seem to do well until I re-planted it this past spring into half of a coconut shell with coir/coconut fiber. I've googled to look at photo's and D. loddigesii is the closest I can come ... but I am so bad at comparing photo's! Any ideas/suggestions on who this one might be?

Thanks so much Ursula! I'm really bad at comparing photo's on the internet to what I have, so it helps having some of you experts confirm for me! Much appreciated!
