Respected Sir
I can see the last link you have provided but not the two link the the
first mail.
I am always confused with this plant.
The pic in the link looks more like Dendrobium ovatum.
But here there is the reddish tinge on the hypochile of the flower
which is so different and looks like Dendrobium barbatulum.
Are you sure you dont have both plants in your garden?

Thank you Dr. Pankaj for your comments. Have both species of orchids on my property &  both are currently flowering.
 From my records over the past few years -
 D.ovatum commences flowering in December [buds are sometimes seen even in Nov.]. Flaowering is at its peak in Jan. Flowering wanes from Feb. through April.
D.barbatulum generally flowers from Feb. to March.
 There is also a marked difference in the colour & size of the flowers - D.barbatulum being much larger.
Am sending photographs of D.ovatum for comparison in a separate mail. The photographs were taken in Jan. this year. Have not posted them before because for me they are quite routine.
                                 With regards,
                                   Neil Soares.
