    Default Dendrobium NOID I call it Fruit Salad

    Its a nobile orchid hybrid, , rather big canes - 18 inch to 1/2 meter tall, and I bought it from a German Orchid trader at a London Show a few years ago. He spun me a wonderful line about how the cross could never be re-made ( didn't understand why not) and promised to e-mail the proper name - which he never did. I find the colouring very unusual, which of course is why I bought it. It was in a 4 or 5 inch pot, absolutely root bound, and I had to saw the pot to get it out. I am in the process of propagating , not to increase the numbers so much, as to get young plants full of canes ready to flower.... Flowers btw about 3 inches.

    If anyone does have a name, I would be happy to hear .

    It reminds me of Den Oriental Smile.

    It throws a lot of nice keikis, so you should be able to give some away or have multiple plants yourself. It will bloom more than once on the same growth, even after the leaves have dropped, so don't cut the stalks down until they're clearly dead.

    Thank you so much for the ID - I have looked at the pics in Orchidwiz and I'm happy to print a new label with this name on. Oriental Smile 'Fantasy' it is.
    Looking at the genealogy I can see where the colour mix comes from, although I only know or remember less than half the names shown there .

    Beauty ! How could I have missed this post. Such a nice colourful dendrobium, I wouldn't mind adding this one to my collection.
