    Default Need Help on ID


    I was walking through the local big box store and this little guy stopped me and asked me to take him home. I said that I would but he wouldn't give me his name, Do you know him?
    Thanks

    There are quite a few that like it but I guess Truong's is as good as any.

    The only thing you can be sure of is that it is a Dendrobium. There are so many look alike hybrids out there that getting a solid positive ID is simply not possible.

    Really is hard to be sure of these dendrobium orchid hybrid names unless someone has the same one blooming at the same time. Then it is sometimes a little easier. The name that Truong suggests seems to fit, though your orchid has much more white in the petals than most photos I see in google. Good luck with it.

    cheers,
