    Default Three different variants of Dendrobium anosmum

    The top is Den anosmum from Ambon (Mollucca island), the middle is Den anosmum from Java, and the bottom one is Den anosmum var superbum. We could notice the difference from their respective color.

    They are some of the easiest orchid to grow and also doesn't need special care to produce flower. However, Den anosmum var superbum produces less keikis compared to the other two. Once the leaves dry, then the spikes will come from its nodes.

    Love the Dendrobium anosmum from Java. It has such a cool, fuzzy lip. Thanks for sharing these different varieties of this orchid.

    Cheers,

    Wow! Those were great. I loved them especially when they are in bloom in summer in the Philippines or Southeast Asia. Their overwhelming scent tells us that they are in flowering season.
