In spike: Ddc. wenzelii
Dendrochilum wenzelii. Another new one for me! I've got all sorts of exciting this happening this year. I swore this spike was a bug of some kind when I first saw it today. Darn near got the tweezers out to pluck it. Anyway. This one blooms on newly matured growths, and my plant happens to have a whole handful of just-maturing leaves right now, so I'm hoping for more than just one spike. Would it be too much to ask if one of the growths on the OUTSIDE of the plant bloomed, rather than this one in the complete middle, where you won't be able to see the flowers at all? Groan.
