Edited by Ursula to say: We mentioned Phalaenopsis type Dendrobiums in the Names Game thread and -


Bigibbum??? I'm afraid I already have one of those. Sad

That's good, Alice. These can be spectacular plants. I have seen these as center pieces at orchid shows. There are lots of different forms of this orchid so the new one will probably look different than the one you have. Be happy! Thumbs up

Wow, that one blew right past me. It must have slipped by Ursula too. Funny, even in retrospect.

Yes, me too, and I fear we can't brag about ours being "compactum" either Ursula. nodding At least I can't.

(Ursula generously shared a division of her Den. biggibbbum var. compactum with me a few years ago). Come to think of it, the flowers do look a little bit like Phals don't they.

OK...it took me a while but I found it. It's a bulbo-phal, not a den-phal....but it's still pretty cool, and HUGE!

And since I was going through YEARS worth of pics to find this, I thought I would share this one too....can you see the smiley face (which I didn't know was there until I uploaded the photo's to my camera!)??

Hmmmm...anyone know why the pics would have been turned sideways while posting? They are right-way-up in my computer. This is the first time that's ever happened to me...

Ursula and Jim, my apologies for hijacking this thread. I was feeling bored and mischievous that day (and am still giggling over that name, who thinks these things up???)

Anyway, "Names" are an important almost academic subject and we should delete the goofy posts and concentrate on the serious stuff on this one.

It IS fun...but Jim went through a lot of work to cover the serious subject...I sorta agree with Alice....maybe we could just split the thread, keeping all of the serious name stuff in the sticky & making a separate one for our fun & silliness?? Ursula?

Ursula, if we want to keep this thread as a sticky, I think we should keep with the informational posts but it is your call.
