    Default Dendrobium bellatulum

    D. bellatulum is a small - growing species from India, China (Yunnan), Vietnam, Laos, Burma and Thailand where it grows at altitudes of 1000-2100m.

    In its natural habitat D. bellatulum is found in deciduous forests where there is bright light and a seasonal climate. It flowers throughout the year with very long-lasting fragrant flowers. An interesting detail is that the colour of the labellum tends to increase in intensity as the flower ages.

    This species is best grown mounted in cool - intermediate conditions and given a fairly dry and bright (even full sun) rest with temps. down to 12°.

    Pseudobulbs: 6-8cm long, leaves: 3-5cm long, flowers: 4-4,5cm across.

    This is the second time it has bloomed this year.

    Apart from the bloom being absolutely beautufl, the last photo is so inspiring and adds significant value to the aesthetic quality complementing the plant itself. Great form and colour palette.

    Great photos, Thomas.

    You can grow this one warmer during the growing season too (At least mine grows better that way...), but cooler and dryer winter is necessary for the plant health

    This one just shot right to the top of my list of must-have dendrobiums. What a beauty.
