    Default Dendrobium pulchellum

    Here is one of my fav specie D. pulchellum from SE Asia. Intermediate grower and the cane can keep reblooming for several years. Flower is also the largest of its' group. Canes can grow as big as over 5 feet... =) so not a plant for small space. I under fertilize this one to keep it small and managable, but when it blooms, it well worth it.

    That's wonderful. Congratulations.
    My favourite species. I think that mine will bloom this year for the first time.

    Very nice.... Both pulchellum and Gatton Sunray can grow very tall, 6 feet or more.. The habit of Gatton Sunray is more bushy and compact than pulchellum...
