    Default Dendrobium fairchildae

    This is a Philippine, large sized, warm to cool growing, lithophytic, deciduous leafed species occuring on exposed rocks at elevations above 1200 meters with clustered, terete, slender stems carrying many, 2 ranked, lanceolate, pointed, deciduous, membraneous leaves that blooms in the mid summer and fall an a very short, axillary, pendulous, few to several [6 to 9] flowered raceme that arise from the nodes near the apex and on the sides of the older leafless canes. Gradually reduce the amount of water and fertilizer through the fall and winter months and resume in the spring after the onset of new growth.(From IOSPE)


    The second plant has blooms damaged by strong winds from the recent typhoon.
