    Default Dendrobium lituiflorum

    Hi Cin,
    The unicum is the crowd's favorite. No doubt about that, mine too!

    Well, I have more dendrobiums in bloom more or less. These plants for some reasons, decide to bloom during the summer. They tend to be warm-growers.

    Dendrobium lituiflorum

    Hailed from the mountains of Indochina, this dendrobium species has larger flowers than others of the same group. The flowers have very strong raspberry scent and are much longer lasting than others that I have seen.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium linguiforme

    Another weird but wonderfull aussie wonder! A miniature dendrobium (dockrillia) species grows best when mounted and is very temperature tolerant. It blooms during the hot summer months. Fragrant though!

    Default Dendrobium bensoniae

    Another deciduous dendrob. It looses all the leaves around November and looks like a bunch of sticks until April and blooms on bare-canes. Lovely! This plant is making a strong growth this year. Maybe next year I will have better blooms!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium amabile

    Hi Bruce,
    Thanks! Australia does have many strange things and its dendrobiums are surely unusual.

    Last but not least of the series is Dendrobium amabile. This gorgeous Southeast Asian species has long been treasured. The spike and flowers are very similar to Dendrobium farmeri or Dendrobium thyrsiflorum but this one has pink shade and strangely enough, it blooms during late spring/summer months. The flowers have a faint, very pleasant but difficult-to-describe scent!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    So if you take the raspberry scented one and put it next to a Sharry Baby, it would smell like a chocolate raspberry torte???

    Hey Doc Spock,

    Is this the bensoniae's typical season to bloom? From it's growth habit it sounds similar to anosmum and aphyllum, which bloom in the spring on deciduous canes after a dry winter rest.

    Thanks you all for looking!

    Hi Tim,
    Glad that you like a native son. Well, right now, there is another aussie dend in bloom but I did not have time to take its picture. The blooms are quite similar to the linguiforme.

    Julie,
    Well, the bensoniae along with the lituiflorum appear to bloom much later than other deciduous dendrobs that I have. This year, they made the new growths first and when the new growths were already quite long like almost a foot, suddenly they formed buds and bloomed. If you look at the picture more closely, you could see the new growth for this year!

    Cheers. Doc Spock!
