Comet King or Lucky Bird? (Den. Nobile Hybrids) Female
Arrow Comet King or Lucky Bird? (Den. Nobile Hybrids)

guys!
I'm thinking about getting a new dendrobium nobile hybrid. I lOOOOve high canes full of flowers!
So elegant!

Actually, I'm debating which one should I choose: Comet King or Lucky Bird?

My heart probably would go for Lucky Bird (or Lucky Holiday.... on the internet I've found the same hybrid with both names)....
But I've noticed in real pictures that Lucky Bird seems to have fewer flowers per inflorescence. The blooms are GORGEOUS but I often see that canes are not fully covered by flowers...

On the other side, Comet King seems to have a very rewarding display - as generous as the Spring dream apollon hybrid!

Considering I love them both.... I'd like to know from you if it's true or not my guess on the Lucky Bird. Do you experience less flowers on your Lucky Bird compared to other common nobile's hybrids?
Also... if you'd like... I would love to see some photos of your nobiles! I can't have enough of beautiful orchids!
Thank you, guys!

Chicken_wing, I must be critical of your thinking.

Get them both!!!

There is no such hybrid as Den. Lucky Holiday - must be mislabeled.

Do you have a terrace, or a place you could grow outdoors? These would be fine outdoors in Rome almost all year. You would need to bring them inside only on nights with temperatures below 2 to 5C. The cool and bright winter weather is what causes flowering.

I grow them in a sort of unheated greenhouse.... even tho it's not a greenhouse. It's a small structure which receives a lot of light.... but it stays cold in winter. I don't grow them in Rome but in a city much cooler than Rome.
I have already two nobiles and they thrive staying there. We've very cold winter (often the temperature drops below 0°C)... but being protected from snow, wind and rain.... they enjoy that place!
Because of this natural temperature drop... they bloom beautifully. Tons of flowers among all the new canes.
For me, because of that place, it's super easy growing them.

@Ray, unfortunately, this place is not only mine and I can't keep all the plants I want there! If I could I would purchase them all!
