I have red spider lily (lycoris radiate) bulbs I can trade for it. I'm also looking for any type of small dendrobium offsets. Thanks.

It's now considered Wind Orchid (Vanda falcata) and a very pretty one!

Oh I didn't know the name changed? I recently got a dendrobium kingianum but I see that one has a new name also. Rolling on the floor laughing It's a very elegant looking orchid. I wonder if I can edit the title?

Oh I thought it had changed lol? It's definitely a pretty orchid. I just got mine today and it either has a keiki or a flower bud on one of the canes. I've read it can even survive frost and temperatures as low as 32 for short periods of time.

I'll get a picture of my new kingianum.

I didn't either, but I'm new to orchids. Hilarious! I think in parts of their native habitat, they deal with frost and occasional freezes.

Here is your major source for Neofinetia falcata

I would ignore the expensive special cultivars which go for tons of money, but try to pick a plain, cheap plant. They would be called Furan.

Thanks Ursula. I bookmarked the page. I didn't know there were so many varieties of Furan. Thumbs up
