Dendrobium Anosmum Orchid Adopted From My Friend's Garden.

Last year I visited a friend in Batu Gajah and was admiring her lovely plants in her garden especially her beautiful orchids. I saw this light purple orchid which I think is the Dendrobium Anosmum orchid. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I had the darker purple version in my garden. You can click here to view the deep purple flower. I actually asked for a cutting or a single plant but my friend was so generous that she gifted me the whole plant. 
 After a few days, I noticed flower buds on the balded stem.
Waiting for the buds to open.
 I was so excited when I saw the first bloom.
 Initially, I hung this orchid plants in semi shade but expose to the morning sun.
 Now I have shifted the plant to under the porch with less sunlight.
 The colour may not be outstanding but it is such a sweet looking flower!
Within a few days, more flowers appeared.
 Happy flowering!
 This is the deep purple orchid. It has since stopped flowering.
Hope these will start to grow healthy once again.
Thank you, Patricia for your gift!

but can face him with confidence and joy because he loves us and we love him too.

  2. It has such a delicate beauty! It is beautiful, and I have no doubt that you will make it flourish. I have never seen one,not even at the orchid shows. They must not grow here.

  14. This looks like the 'wild' type. The flowers are not as large the usual cultivated type... still, the plant has its own beauty.
