A much rarer variety than the usual purple/pink and even the alba forms. I bought it as a 'pink' without flower, but now I'm glad it turned out to be this variety.. Another unbloomed cane has about a dozen buds on it..
WOW - I love the close up photo of the inside of the lip. So perfect. Nice growing. I hope you will update this thread when the other blooms open.
Hi paphioboy yours look like semialba rather than var huttonii, look my first photo is similar like yours the other 3 is variety huttonii.
Zainal, if you google var huttoni, you will find that most are similar to my plant, which is a true semi-alba with white petals and a dark purple lip. Your 'huttoni' in the three pictures appears to be what some people call anosmum var delacourii, which has a hairy lip that rolls inwards like a tube. I'm not sure if the varietal name is valid but I have seen it used in a book and mentioned on the web as well.
Lovely dendrobs. Thanks for sharing and the explaination on the varieties .
