    Default Dendrobium 'Pukekura'

    This is a good ol' born and raised in godzone NZ orchid. This cute little Dendrobium likes it intermediate, so i grow it on my fishtank in winter, and is related to D. nobile and is also deciduous. It will flower for up to three seasons on a single growth too. Unfortunatly before i bought this one back indoors, the snails had themselves a little feast on the new shoots, so now i have to wait and hope for some new ones!
