Cat did you buy it? Any idea of the name? The flowers look paper like.
Mike, I believe it’s a Dendrobium.
When I first came to Thailand and asked to purchase one, the Thai I was with said it was a native orchid and they were not supposed to be taken from the jungles/forests.
But they are everywhere, no not exactly rare.
This is actually around 20 plants clinging onto a narly 3 foot board. The board will make it easier to take care of (absorbs water).
I can usually walk away from orchids but this show of yellow was too much for me.
And as I’d bitten the bullet, I went ahead and bought four Paph. barbatums.
My dear Canadian friend (who is leaving soon) will now bring all her orchids over for me to care for.
