    Default Semi alba variety of Dendrobium secundum

    I have all three (Pink, red and semi alba) varieties of this D. secundum. The semi alba is not quite common compared to its pink brethren but surprisingly this variety thrive better in my garden. The bloom lasts around 1 week.

    Those are beautiful! Dendrobiums don't even have to have tags for me to buy them. I love to grow them as they are so rewarding and bloom here easily.

    Very pretty, Mazlan. My pink one does very well here - but then, it was collected just a few miles away from my house.
