    Smile Dendrobium i.d. question

    Here's a new one....I've really got to declare this the last one for awhile; I have my free plant for joining a club coming and after that I'm done buying for awhile....
    Anyways, from looking at the info here and on other websites I think I may be it a Dendrobium Phalaenopsis Biggibbum? The stake reads Dendrobium 20-06/#18 Samphan Brown. I cannot find Samphan Brown anywhere....Here's a is a very deep deep violet or purple, the picture looks much lighter but shows off the veining.

    Default Nice!

    I love the mottled veining in the flowers..almost reminds me of vandas.

    What you have is a hard cane dendrobium hybrid. This hybrid is probably made with D. biggibum and/or D. phalaenopsis, crossed again with Lord knows what else.

    Samphan Brown isn't registered with the Royal Horticultural Society, so I don't know its parentage.

    It is lovely, but you will probably have a hard time finding the name for this one since there are so many that are so similar. Still, it has beautiful blooms!
