Dendrobium barbatulum had also commenced flowering. Sending a few photographs.
Please also check this link for my previous photographs:
Forwarding again for Id confirmation or otherwise please.
Some earlier relevant feedback:
“Neil Ji very nice photo , if you have the photos of the leaves kindly post
“I have been looking at this plant since morning and trying to conclude if this is Dendrobium barbatulum or Dendrobium ovatum.
Unfortunately I can reach to any conclusion!!
I have been telling people to send me some flowers of both of the species since a long time, but havent got any, untill recently Ms. Smita told me that she is sending some, which is yet to reach me.
The link you have provided seems to me as a different flower than this one. This is green, the flower on the link is reddish. If you can compare the spur of your flower with Mr Swagat's then you will find this one to be much longer than the other. I will wait for Smita's specimen and study more to confirm.
In the meantime, anyone who is willing to share pics of both (if they think they know both plants), they can send me the samples in 70% (atleast 5 flowers with bracts), in separate bottles or may be in same bottle with flwoers properly labelled.
I would be grateful.
If these are Dendrobium ovatum, then what are these orchids of mine seen in this link : [Incidentally these photographs have featured in Dr.Pande et all's "Wild Orchids of the North Western Ghats"].
Please don't tell me that they are the same.
