    This is a very beautiful species of genus Dendrobium. These orchids grow in cool to warm temperatures with medium amount of light. They mostly enjoy growing in medium of fir bark; as keeping them moist and supplied with fertilizers is essential.

    yes the color is variable on this species from pale to deep-shaded. I believe there is an alba form as well. It is a nice species!

    Eric, I thought the culture on this one was to dry between watering. At least that is how I grow it and it blooms for me.

    Yew, it isn't a alba form. This is pure white. I have one but still not flowers.
    I took this picture, tow weeks ago, in South Thailand. Temperature around 35 °C or 95 °F and medium shadow.

    Its good, but some of the orchids fail to bloom because of insufficient light. Phalaenopsis and Paphiopedilum orchids can grow well with an average light; but many other varieties need more light than that. Dendrobium, Cattleya, Oncidium and other ‘medium to high light’ orchids should be grown within additional grow lights.
