    Default Dendrobium Copter

    Hi everyone, My Name is Wolf, and I'm an orchiholic.

    Just kidding, I do have a few though. Mostly I inherited them from an ex roomate who moved out and left them here. About 11 are NOIDs but a few have tags and one is Dendrobium Copter. However, I can't seem to find anything on this specific Dendrobium here or any where else.

    Anyway if you have info on Dendrobium Copter a pic of the bloom would be great.

    Thanks

    Wolf

    P.S. I wonder if anyone has thought of doing research on why they are so adictive... but their probably too busy growing their orchids.

    Hi Wolf, Welcome!

    I did a quick search and it appears Den. Copter is going to have a dark purple/marron bloom. The parents are: Den. Copper Queen x Den. Doctor Poyck. It was first registered in 2001 by P.Buranaraktham. I could not locate a photo of the actual plant or bloom, but did find images of the parents. Both were fairly analogous in color. Copper Queen being a fairly dark purple with a light green center and Doctor Poyck a brown/red. Another member here will probably have more information, so hang in there! Once again, welcome.

    Cheers!

    Great! I look forward to seeing it. I just hope it doesn't turn out orange or pink or something after my post

    Cheers!

    I just bought my first orchid at a box store. Don't know a thing about them, but did find a stick in the plant that said Den Copter. As you I tried looking it up and found nothing. Mine seems to be a pale purple. I will take a picture of it as soon as I find out how this site works.

    Hi Dave,

    Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll like it here. Once you have made at least 5 posts, you will be able to post photos, and use a number of other features on this site.

    Cheers,

    Rob
