Difficult Dendrobium

D. taurinum flowers
The flowering specimen
Flower detail
Quick Post: About a month ago I found the longest spray of my D. taurinum having a flower spike. Today the spike finally opened up to reveal the nice white and dark purple blooms. The plant is also bringing out new shoots which hopefully would also grow to full size. 

I was told that one of the more challenging Dendrobium orchids to flower in Manila is D. taurinum.  It would require a dry but humid area.  I was warned that it won't probably flower here but I gave it the benefit of the doubt.
