    Talking Tiny Orchid Blooms of Dendrobium Jim Beck

    This dendrobium orchid has the smalest blooms of any dendrobium we grow. They measure maybe an half-inch in height and at the most 3/4 in in width (and that would be the largest of the bunch). Most are about the size of my big thumb nail.

    this orchid has a wonderfully color pattern in its lip and a frosting of the same colors over the white bloom.

    It typically blooms down inside the plant, but some of these spikes stick up out of the mass of the plant. I am hoping for a keiki on this one since after being attacked by scale, it has never fully recovered its vigor.

    That is a very nice dendrob. Like the color and the detail on the labellum. Thanks for sharing BD.

    That's really nice Bruce. I was so enamored with the tiny orchid blooms that I saw this past weekend. Most of the ones that I loved would have needed a greenhouse and I don't think I could grow them.

    Very fine flowers Bruce. Do you raise quite a few Dendrobiums? If so what kind do you raise? Any that go dormant in winter?

    Hi Al. Yes, I have a nice variety of dendrobiums (some I haven't bloomed yet, but they should be big enough this year or next.) I am always looking for more though.
