    Default My first Den.

    Hi,

    Here is the new Dendrobium I bought today. I know nothing about it but I couldn't resist it. I just love the colors. The name on the tag is Dendrobium Oriental Smile 'Fantasy' AD/AOS. The scent reminds me of Fruit Loop cereal...lol. The top of the cane is yellowish in color......is that normal? or is something wrong?

    Thanks,
    Andrea

    The Yellowish cane is normal in a high light situation that produces that many flowers.

    This is one of Yamamoto's hybrids--he is a GOD in this particular type of nobile hybridization.
