Shoreguy...40 yrs? Fantastic and very impressive. Dens and I have never hit it off but yours is truly a specimen. I've coddled a Potinara for 14 yrs for sentimental reasons that's just now showing much improvement. TY for posting this senior plant!

I have one that has a very nice, strong, fruity smell and one that doesn't seem to have any fragrance at all. The third one has yet to bloom. I admit, I really like this little orchid.

Mine has a non flowery impossible to describe irritating smell which I have come to somewhat enjoy.

I will consider myself fortunate for the first two, then, but that will probably be the way the third one goes. Yours is really lovely and I am impressed that you have had it so long. I had no idea until just a few years ago that these wonderful little Dendrobiums existed.

I've been growing and blooming mine for over 40 years under various watering and feeding conditions. I do give it strong afternoon natural sunlight.

Mine sprouted in a terrarium after awhile in the grower's greenhouse, I don't think they gave it any sort of winter rest. They only grow things they can keep relatively easily, along with other tropical plants, none of which need any rest. It's not a fussy plant.

And I apologize for not seeing sooner, but the plant with the round, spotted leaves is a Peperomia. I'm not sure what kind.

I love these Dendrobium or Drockrillia! I have a lichenastrum ambiance Kathleenís classical that flowers off and on. The blooms are a bit hidden though the fragrance, if you can call it fragrance, is a dead give away! My small indoor greenhouse reeks of fish.

These Drockrillia are some of my favorite orchids. Here is a picture of my stinker with one small flower.
