Dendrobium cuthbertsonii

A New Guinea native, coming from the highlands. Gorgeous in full bloom on a specimen plant, this plant is a youngling with two flowers. Notice how large the flowers are compared to the size of the plant! The flowers are long lasting, staying in good shape for several months. Flower colour is variable, from yellows to oranges to pinks to purples and even alba (white) forms.

The leaves are covered with tiny warts, which adds to the interest of the plant.

A very worthwhile orchid to grow, provided you have the right conditions (intermediate to cool temperatures, good light, plenty of humidity, regular watering).
