    Default Dendrobium??

    A cutting of this orchid was given to me many years ago, the giver did not know what it was or the name. It is a prolific plant, and blooms once a year at this time.
    I have guessed that it is a Den. species, but then there is that little hook beneath the lip which makes me question, maybe Aerides????
    Can you help?

    I know little about it. My friend had it growing in full sun, and I have mine growing outdoors in an area that gets full sun until about 11.00am. The plant griows rapidly with very long fat roots.

    What does the plant look like, Angela? The growth and leaves? Pretty orchid blooms regardless of the name.

    cheers,

    Angela you can really not confuse between an aerides and a dendrobium, they are very different in growth habit. This plant is definitely a vandaeceous and not a dendrobium. I have seen aplant called Aeridachnis Bogor Apple Blossom, it is a hybird between Arachnis hookeriana x Aerides odorata, and is a famous cutflower in the orient. Possibly yours is the same.

    I'm inclined to agree with Amey. It looks like Aerdns Bogor, but what surprises me is that it blooms only once a year for you, In Malaysia and Singapore it is quite free flowering, the reason for it being grown for the cut flower trade. Maybe this clone used the Arachnis hookeriana var alba instead of the hookeriana var luteola . The latter parent imparts the free flowering characteristic to its offspring and is used extensively in producing Aranda and Mokara in Singapore and Malaysia. Hybrids using other forms of Arachnis hookeriana are not so free flowering.
