    Default Trying to Identify white-orange orchid

    When my Mom passed in Dec I brought several of her orchids home. This was one of her favorites, and mine, too. But I can't identify it. Can anyone help? Thanks, Name:  256595_10151447846335127_1990763595_o-001.jpg

    Looks like a Dendrobium formosum hybrid...Possibly Dend Frosty Dawn (Dend Dawn Maree x Dend Lime Frost) or Dend Roongkamol Vejvarut (Dawn Maree x formosum)

    Thanks. I was pretty sure it was a Denrobium.

    It's definitely a nobile type Dendrobium! I've always had a difficult time with them, because of the cooling off-no water thing...but hopefully you can keep it alive! What a beautiful thing to remember your mother by.

    I personally don't think it is a nobile type

    The flowers definitely appear to be growing out of the cane, as opposed to a spike formation.

    There are many species of Dends without spikes. Formosum types have a very short, axillary or terminal raceme with 1 to 4 fragrant flowers that arise from the nodes near the apex of the leafed, mature cane.

    Just checked that out, and you're right! I didn't know that. But they are still deciduous, aren't they?

    Yes a Formosae dendrobium - most probably a hybrid. They are not deciduous.
