    Talking Dendrobium Burana Sunshine ' MUtation ' - the Weird One

    I have posted pictures of this dendrobe before. The plant has grown a lot and is very healthy and producing weirder and weirder flowers. The flowers start off by being their 'normal' self and as the flowers age each individual flower will start to produce 'florets' and become almost a composite flower, with clusters of 3 - 9 florets. I have cut up a single flower to show the sum total of its florets. Can't detect any male or female parts.

    Pix #1 - Showing 1 complete flower and and the 'florets' inc a bud from another flower.
    Pix #2 - The 'florets' from a single flower
    Pix #3 - The whole 'composite' flower
    Pix #4 - The spike with a branch (on a dendrobe?) with older flowers and newer flowers that have not yet developed the 'florets'.

    Feel free to comment and criticise. After all my reason for acquiring this weirdo was for it to serve as a conversation piece.

    Weird and this abnormal den. sometimes very pretty and sometimes very irritating anyway this is creation of man made in order to get better flowers the bad genetic usually will follow after manipulation with the DNA.

    That is truly bizarre! I can't say it's attractive but it is interesting.

    Poor confused little sucker. Sorry, mutations are generally not my cup of tea (except albinos). I don't even like regular pelorics..

    Hi Yew
    I'll take it for what it is, a Mutation. I still feel that a spike, in bloom is quite pretty. I would have one.
    Thanks for sharing.

    This is a tall and fat trees grow very well, the shape of the flower is very likely this is a mutant form of petals
