    Default variegated anosmum

    Hello everyone. Just a small question...I have a small plant of dendrobium anosmum that a friend gave to me, it is still very small and about to be mounted but the curious thing is that it is variegated white and green on the leaves...will this be something that the plant will hold for the rest of it's life span? gee...would love if it did, looks great. Anyone have any opinions on this?
    Cheers

    There are some dendrobiums that are known to have variegated forms. I'm just not sure which species/hybrids they are specifically.

    If the variegation (sp?) is due to genetics and not from a virus, then the plant will continue to have variegated leaves.
    Actually... if it is a virus then those patterns would stay with the plant anyway and manifest on news leaves as well.

    The plant is one of those that will drop it's leaves in the fall , the variegation could be from a lot of sun . You will know once it starts new growth with new leaves . If very small I would not with hold water and food like is done with the larger ones . Gin

    Default v. anosmum

    Upload an image close up of the leaf. That will enable us to be more informative of 'exactly' what you have.
