    Default Dendrobium NOID

    Hi everyone, I was given two of these the other day. I'm assuming they are a terrestrial Dendrobiums. They are potted in soil with some bark, not sure wether species or hybrid was hoping somebody could help me out with the name. Thanks.

    I don't know what kind, but I can say for certain it should not be growing in dirt. I'd guess the bark has broken down over the years and noone has repotted it. Dendrobiums are very hardy and even bark that is disintigrating generally doesn't slow them down much. lol Nice plant...if you repot carefully you won't lose buds and blooms. Good luck with your new dendrobium....it's a nice one!

    Shane is not terrestrial somehow the vendor used soil as a media is not good option the best always to re pot again otherwise the existing root will rot at any time. This is dendrobium hybrid one of the parent I think is bigibbum.

    My guess would be Dendrobium Phalaenopsis var. compactum

    Plant and flower size claims bigibbum as a parent. Plant looks great and apparently had a fantastic bloom season but definately get it repotted in some fresh bark. Too nice a plant to loose.
