My Dendrobium Love Memory ‘Fizz’ is starting to bloom. I have been watching three buds form on one of the canes for a couple of weeks, and they bloomed yesterday. It is blooming a little earlier than I had expected, however things have warmed up here (today 77 degrees), and it really feels like spring. Several of the other Nobile-type Dendrobiums are now in bud also, and I should have a good crop of flowers soon.
I purchased this orchid on March 15, 2015 from an eBay seller, so it is one of my older ones.
The colors are really intense on this picture. I used the flash on the IPhone as the camera was facing south and the glare was pretty intense. They don’t appear quite this intense to the naked eye.
