    Love the vivid red on that first one.

    Did the sulawense make for a warmth tolerant or outright warm growing hybrid? Too bad the hybrid didn't retain cuth's leaves.

    Hi Pavel. Yes, that first one is Den. mohlanianum and indeed it is a very waxy red/orange flower. The cuth X sulawense is a funny little thing...it can take the cold well but also the heat!! shame you can't see the leaves but they too are textured and slightly crepe paper like, albeit not as much. I have two cuths and the oddest things they are....they grow better warm for me!!! go figure...

    Surprising. I have avoided cuths BECAUSE of their coolness requirement. Maybe you can line breed yours to create a hot growing cultivar.

    One question Ozorchid. What's the name of the last one in the first row of pictures (the one you hold between your fingers)?

    Hello there. The one you mentioned is Dend. Pam Tajima. It is a cross of Den. eximium and atroviolaceum. Fairly easy to grow in intermediate conditions and can take some cold and drying out in the winter.
    I find the New Guinea Dendrobiums to be funny little things....the cool growing ones tend to take forever to flower for me in my conditions but the warmer growers seem to flower just fine!!! and...I do not heat the greenhouse at all in winter.....weird... ha ha ha
