    Default Dendrobium anosmum 'Cella' AM/RHS

    A large flower/very long cane variety of this species. The mother plant has 9-10 feet long canes! And this one is just a keiki. I am keeping my finger crossed for this year, couldn't wait to see how long the cane might be!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium anosmum var. alba

    The alba variety of this delightful species. All of these anosmum dendrobium blooms smell like rasberry!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium albosanguineum

    This species sometimes is sold under the name of Dendrobium aphrodite (Goddess of Love) although there is a very similar Dendrobium aphrodite species. Found in Burma and Thailand, this is a very beautiful dendrob! The blossoms have a delightful rasberry scent! But watch out, inhaling too much of these rasberry scents give me a headache! Olfactory system overload, maybe?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium primulinum var. assamicum

    A dendrobium species from India with simmering lilac petals and sepals blooms. Decadently fragrant! This plant was near death two years ago but I managed to nurture it and it recovers. It surprises me with one bloom this year and I think, next year, it will do much better!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Beautiful as always... and even within a genus (albeit a really large one) there is such a variety of flowers to be had... faves in this lot is the Dend Eureka hybrid as well as the albosanguineum!

    Thanks for allowing us to share these beauties

    They are all great, my favorites are the thrysiflorum and the farmeri. Are you posting these just to get me to invest in one of these beauties? Do you really want to sentence one to a miserable death at my inept hands??

    Absolutely lovely, Hoa!

    They're creeping, one keikei at a time, into my heart. I'll experiment with the keikei I just got (either aphyllum or aphyllum x anosmum). If I can make it happy, I just may have to get some more. I do have an amethystoglossum that's big and happy, but refuses to bloom. If I could figure that one out, I'd have more confidence.

    I guess it's all those crappy little box store Dends, with puny ugly flowers, that have turned me off to the genus. Your's are certainly spectacular, Hoa!

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks for the comments. I really like the Eureka hybrid plant. Very eye-catching yellow blooms! The spike did not develop normally (curving), hopefully next year, it will do better. The dendrobium aphrodite is also a crowd favorite!

    Hi Diane,

    I don't mean to post these pictures as a way to entice you guys to invest in some of these beauties although I (or rather we, me and Tim -O) already suggested australian dendrobiums for you. Don't feel bad at all if you have sent many to the orchid heaven! Many of my dendrobiums have gone to the land beyond before I figure out how to keep them. (Thanks goodness that these plants were seed grown.) From my experiece, I would not suggest many of these asian dendrobiums for many of you. Many of these dendrobiums like to be mounted (i.e. dry roots) but in order to keep these roots, high humidity is required. They also like lot of heat/light/water/fertilizer during growth season (temperatures in the 80s F, heavy fertilizing) but when cool weather arrives, they like it very bright and much drier (even some want no water!), much less fertilizers or none, and some coolish temperatures at night to help with pseudobulb/cane maturation and flowering! To grow these guys, some sense of adventurous might be needed. However I have to say this, you can grow Dendrobium thrysiflorum outside here in Southern Cal. I used to do that and my neighbor is doing that. You just have to figure out how! BTW, are you sure you want some of these guys? Although they are drop-dead gorgeous, their beauty does not last very long! I say 10 days from start to finish for many of them (some only 1 day). We need to grown them to specimen size then they will bloom continuously for a month or so such that we can enjoy them longer!

    Hi Julie,

    Thanks for the comments! Well for most dendrobiums, a change in weather pattern (like temperature, temperature differentiation between day and night, or change in daylight hours) tends to trigger blooming and if your dendrobium has been grown indoor, it probably thinks it is experiencing a very very long summer, so it just keeps on growing and growing!
    Department store dendrobiums, as I figure out, are the easiest to grow and probably that is why we see them everywhere! My first successes with dendrobiums were with nobile dendrobiums and australian dendrobs. These plants can be grown outside in Southern Cal here. That fact helps a lot. The other kind of dendrobs that you see at box store (dend. phalaenopsis hybrid type) is easy if you figure them out. It turns out they like heat (high temperatures if you can provide that), very bright light, dry out between watering, and fertilizers. In a way, they can be grown like cattleyas with the only difference - the high temperature/very bright light requirement!

    Until next time, enjoy our little trip ...
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium Sweet Song 'Memory'

    It blooms the first time for me. The flowers from this one are so big, I was shocked to see them. Lovely sweet fragrance!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Dendrobium Kogane

    Another nobile-type dendrobium is currently in bloom.
