Dendrobium Love Memory 'Fizz' blooming in April in Puerto Rico

A well bloomed plant of this nobile hybrid.   It was brought to the April 10 meeting of the AOS judges in the city of Ponce, Puerto RIco.  In the last few years, large numbers of these Dendrobium hybrids have been sold in local stores.  Most succumb to neglect, unsuitable care or the usual pests that infest gardens everywhere.  But it seems a few people are being reblooming these plants successfully.  None of my plants bloom like these in my garden, what they do is produce a few large flowers near the top of the cane.  But the flowers are so delightful, I don't mind.
