    Default Dendrobium Salaya Lai Kiang identification

    I have a lovely Dendrobium that just bloomed. It is striped pink. The tag reads Dendrobium Lai Kiang RC=WK 20/16 1 x WK 10/17 Tan TB3562
    Can anyone help me identify it?

    They can be difficult to give a specific species name but for sure it is even harder without a photo attached for us to see!

    Mary, photo or no, I doubt you're ever going to have a reliable ID, and are likely another victim of "grower's shorthand" on tags that lead to lost identification.

    There are only two registered dendrobium hybrids with "Salaya" in the name, Salaya Brown and Salaya Pink.

    Den. Lau Moi Kiang is the only hybrid name containing "Kiang", and the closest thing resulting from searching for "Lai K" is Den. Loo Lai Kheng.

    Thank you. That is the same conclusion that I reached. I really tried to upload a photo. I think my difficulty is with my iPad not accessing adobe flash. In any cas, it’s a lovely orchid, but it won’t win ribbons. Too bad. You were most kind to help me search. Mary

    If you have the image on a web page somewhere - flickr or whatever - you can access it remotely by surrounding the URL with [_IMG]...[/_IMG] tags (less the underscore).
