    Default Dendrobium pierardii

    Again I can not take credit for this blooming, got it a couple a weeks ago in bud. If you are questioning the name, this was on the tag that came with the orchid, but I see it is also known as Dendrobium cucullatum and Dendrobium aphyllum. It would be nice if they would make up their minds, but I am not complaining!

    It's nice even if you didn't do it.

    Dendrobium cucullatum is the right name. There is also a lot of ID clash with primulinum which also looks same.

    I had put together some key differences

    Recently there were a few discussion on ID'ing Dendrobium primulinum and Dendrobium aphyllum

    Based on what I know I have put together differences I know. Hope it would be useful

    Dendrobium primulinum

    1. Old canes are yellow to dark green and have sheaths and visible green lines
    2. Canes are thicker,round and smooth compared to aphyllum
    3. New growths are green in color (apple green)
    4. Single Flowers appear from the nodes and leaves behind a dent in the node. Buds are enveloped in a sheath before it develops
    5. Canes are relatively short and stout

    Dendrobium aphyllum

    1. Old canes are green to brown to maroon in color with lines that are visible only on close observation
    2. Canes are relatively thin but are not smooth.
    3. New growths have a brown/maroon tinge but become green once it grows a few leaves
    4. 1-3 flowers appear in each node. No dents are noticed in the node. No extra sheath in buds
    5. Canes are relatively long and wiry

    i just looked it up on the kew web site this is what they state...

    This mistaken identity has now been cleared up by Kew botanist André Schuiteman, with the result that the name D. aphyllum must be reinstated for the orchid formerly known as D. pierardii or D. cucullatum. Dendrobium macrostachyum should again be used for the smaller flowered species.

    The name of the orchid really does not matter to me, it is the beauty of the orchid that makes my day! After all what's in a name!

    On IOSPE, all routes end back at D. aphyllum for this orchid.

    It is absolutely beautiful. And I think you deserve some credit; it didn't take one look at your grow area and drop its buds after all! Nice photo too.
