    Default What type of Dendrobium is this?

    Hi there,

    This is my first post on this forum, I have quite a few phalaenopsis orchids in my collection but i would like to id a dendrobium, I ordered this from a florist in Darwin Austraila for my friends birthday back in feb. I'm from the UK and my friend is too but she's living out there at the moment.

    The florist said to me it was a Dendrobium Singapore Orchid.

    Here are the pictures of it, The flowers has pretty much died off when they were taken.

    I would like to know the exact type of dendrobium it is, thanku very much in advance.

    Your Dendrobium is a hybrid and it will not be possible to make a precise identification because there are hundreds of similar appearing hybrids of this general type. This type of hybrid comes primarily from Dendrobium section Phalaeanthe (phalaenopsis type) and section Spatulata (antelope type). It should be easy to find cultural information for those types with an internet search.

    I see Dory! is there a Nemo and Marlin too?a french cleaner shrimp? tell him his tank is awesome! Nice dendrobium too. Florists mass order their orchids, and they never ever sell them with ID's, sometimes because they dont come with the plants, or because they look unsightly and degrade the image.
