    Default Dendrobium

    It seems that I will only ever get one plant flowering at any one time... so this month's special is none other than....

    Dendrobium chrysanthum Wallich ex Lindley 1828



    A species with a wide distribution from the Himalayan foothills of India to South-east Asia, growing epiphytically or as lithophytes on limestone cliffs and sometimes even as terrestrials.

    The plant can be up to 150cm tall, but has a pendant habit, which may be better accomodated in a basket... of course I just tie them to a point and then let them arch from there...

    The bloom season is generally from summer to autumn, but plants may bloom sporadically throughout the year... Slightly fragrant reminiscent of peaches...

    Very pretty! How true is the color, Tim? I find it impossible to capture that color correctly in photos (my mini-catt is close to that.)

    Diane, the flowers are pretty waxy.. I hope that means a long life...

    Julie, the colour is pretty acurate, it really is this amazing golden yellow! I'm pretty chuffed about it actually... I think it is just the prettiest Dend!

    Very attractive. I love that waxy texture, it makes the color feel so intense.

    Wow, those are nice. Has anyone ever tried growing those on a rock??? You said they occur that way naturally. I really like the look of mounted Orchids.
