    Default Den Nobile hybrid

    It got no name, so I named it White . I can't take credits for the bloom, it was already in bud when I bought it. This is my first attempt to grow this type of Dendrobium and I hope it wont die of heat stroke this summer.

    Tanya, it gets very hot out here, and the ones I have do just fine. As long as you can cool it down and still maintain bright light over winter, it should keep blooming regularly for you.

    One I've got that looks just like that is called Dend. Spring Dream 'Apollon'. May or may not be it, though.

    I thought it looked more like Sea Mary than Spring Dream . . . but they look almost the same. I think Sea Mary has a tiny dot of reddishness in the back of the throat, and is larger and frillier. But still, almost the same.

    For your reference, here's my Spring Dream 'Apollon'

    It's probably neither. The petals on Tanya's are a lot more ruffly than my Spring Dream, and the green extends to the back of the throat rather than stopping two thirds of the way like on Gin's Sea Mary.

    Kev, if you like Dends, the nobile types are definitely worth checking into--a full cane or two covered top to bottom with blooms is a real show-stopper, I think.

    Thank you guys for the info. I think its more closer to Spring Dream than Sea Mary. Here's another view. The flowers higher up the cane are much smaller and less fluffier, probably my fault. The buds were still very tiny when I bought the plant. I've changed the name to Dendrobium Spring Dream Lemon White .

    Kev, the second pic is worh drolling for. Its AWESOME! Of course its not mine . But I hope I could grow mine half as this one. Clever staking and training is also involve so that you have almost the same view no matter what side you view the plant.
