    Default Dendrobium Gillieston 'Stardust' ?

    Since the name tag is hard to read, I am not sure this is the correct name. This is one of the Australian Dendrobium hybrids.

    There is a whole series of Den. Gillieston XXX hybrids, including Den. Gillieston and Den. Gillieston Stardust. I would say this is likely to be Gillieston Stardust, since it is 75% Den. speciosum, and Gillieston contains no speciosum.

    Beautiful!!!! Love the colour and markings. Thanks for posting as I'm not familiar with the Australian den drones.

    The shape says Aussie, I'm sure. I have not met such a nice yellow.
    We used to get Aussie nurseries coming to UK shows, but not any more - currency conversion bad ? air fares gone up too much, and no cheapies ?
    The world used to be getting smaller by the day, but its only the elctronnic world which does that now, otherwise its going in the other direction I think.

    Since I got a piece of it from my friend two years ago, it put out about 3 new growths. It's less than a foot tall. The best part is that it blooms from the older growth one after another. Slightly fragrant.
