    Default Dendrobium hybrids

    Just to share with you I made this crossing about 5 years ago between D. farmeri x D. chrysotoxom all yellow, farmeri was carrying the seed pod. I was hoping that all the flower should be all yellow however it's didn't happen as I wish. The flower exactly like farmeri in character and the inflorescence very closed to D, chrysotoxom, the smell is in between this 2, what do you think ? is the farmeri is bleaching agent until no yellow appeared in this crossing?

    Yes I agree the yellow of chrysotoxum is completely absent from this cross. The pseudobulbs look like a combination of the p'bulbs of both parents and the floral arrangement of the blooms on the spike resemble that of chrysotoxum, i.e more spaced out than farmeri. Does it bloom more than once a year? Any way it is quite attractive.

    Thanks Yew actually last year once and this is a beginning of this year, I think most probably is not frequent blooming but let me observe first as the mature pbulb already increasing in numbers hopefully I'm wrong.
