That is one massive dendrobium, Florida. Thumbs up What is the variety? How old is this plant. For perspective, what's the diameter of the flower? Are they fragrant?

This was Florida's first time to post pictures (perhaps her first time post of any sort) and this was a really good one. How about someone putting a name on this specimen plant?

Here's a start on that identification. I am pretty certain it is a Den. loddigesii. What do you think?

Hi Ursula. I'm new to this posting stuff, so hope you bear with me if I ask dumb questions. I had to seperate this orchid and put it on another piece of wood because it became so entanged, I didn't want to loose it. Here are a few more pictures. I am a prolific picture taker, ecpecially with flowers, plants, even bugs! Thumbs up
