Do you know what this one is Greg? Some kind of orchid? How tall was the plant? The strings look pretty long. Good combination of form and color in the photo.

Dirt - I'll look it up and see - it seems easy to id because of those long bloom stalks (strings)

There's only one photo in our database of a bloom of the species: Orchid (Dendrochilum latifolium) but no photos yet at the entry for Orchid (Dendrochilum latifolium var. macranthum)
