    Default variability in current Dendrobium anosmum blooms

    The first photo is that of the classic D. anosmum, not the giganteum or superbum variant that perhaps most of you have. The flowers here are about 20% smaller, but the pink-purple color is intense.
    The second photo is a very light variant of the superbum variety. So light, I am almost tempted to call it the huttonii , or semi-alba variant, but nope...Next year I may have a real huttonii.
    The third is the alba form of the superbum variant. Fewer flowers, in this case the cane has only one bloom. Next year the plant may be bigger and perhaps may have more blooms per cane.

    Hi ! There

    I think i have also seen this topic in Garden Web hehehe!!!!


    Anyway, I also thought of the plant in the middle ( of the picture) as var huttonii I was also able to get a plant from the last day of the PHS show in late January 2005 in Manila Seedling Bank. after a month it had flowered as it was that same color but my initial excitement turned into dismay as this is just a semi-alba form!

    I bought my Dendrobium anosmum var dearei from several sources but so far the ones that i got from Minda ( the dealer from Sgt. Bumatay ) and Andres Golamco had already flowered! I tried mounting it in our Manila Palm.

    I have seen several specimen plants of Mr. Dennis Sy of Jo's Chicken Inato in his restaurant along Visayas corner Congressional Avenue in Quezon City and he got a lot of different varieties of Dendrobium anosmum all blooming at the same time! with all different colour , shapes and sizes ! Some of his plants were several decades old!

    I may again try to buy some orchids ( Dendrobium anosmum ) next sunday .
    Sayang there was a nice semi-alba type of plant that was sold last sunday and a large dark colored Dendrobium anosmum var superbum . I just do not have enough money that time so i just have to be contented with small specimen Dendrobium anosmum types!
    I might purchase a digital camera (hopefully) so that i can post pictures here!

    I hope to meet you one day!!!!! Baka nakikita na kita !!!! Hehehehe

    Very interesting! And nice blooms as well! I am not so surprised that there are so many different vaireties of this species. Mine are in bloom too! A dark purple clone (called Cella, got an AM/RHS) and the alba variety!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Yup! Various sizes and shapes too! But according to one site Dendrobium anosmum var dearei from the Philippines seldom flowers in lowland
