Antennatum blooms very easily here. Almost year round. Marcophyllum too but seasonal. And spectabile. No experience with the other Latourias.

Atroviolaceum. But best to be grown from flasks - adults burn very easily and hard to acclimatise.

Can I treat my macrophyllum like ordinary dendro hybrids: as much sun as possible with much watering, and no cold, dry rest?

That is what I do for my macrophyllum too but not full sun as it will burn the leaves. 75% sun will do. Gathered that macrophyllum is not drought tolerant unlike other dendrobiums and u need to water everyday provided the media is dry.

Actually I don't have Den.macrophyllum.
But I saw at my friend nursery,not far from Bangkok,hot climate.
He cans grow this species flower every year.
Maybe the origin of my friend plants is from lowland.

My Dendrobium Johannis has been blooming non-stop and it has just started blooming it's 3rd set of flowers since i bought it early this year. The flowers are long lasting & has very strong honey-lemon smell. Mine simply loves direct sun.

Dendrobium Capra almost also have continuous flower spikes. My plant just dropped all it's flowers yesterday and i'm already seeing 2 flower spikes popping up again today :happy: It is also placed under direct sun.
