Dendrobium gouldii Rchb. f. 1867, "blue", the grand champion of the 2016 Puerto Rico Orchid Society show
This orchid was the Grand Champion of the 2016 Puerto Rico Orchid society show. The plant was big and had a number of massive inflorescences with a large number of flowers. Unfortunately, it was on the very center of the exhibit where many other plants obscured its size. The flowers have a nice shape and a delightful color. The size of the plant makes clear that its owner is skilled at growing these plants which can be tricky to grow to this large size.
