    Default Dendrobium cuthbertsonii

    This has got to be one of my favorite orchid species. Big flowers on tiny plants, great color varieties, and flowers that last up to six months each.
    These were grown by a nursery in Ecuador
    I haven't grown my own plants for very long, so I'm not sure if I'll be successful. They look great so far...
    From what I understand, they like constant moisture, high humidity, intermediate light, and cool to intermediate conditions. The most successful growers recommend removing any buds and blooms that are on the plant in December to allow the plants to recover from all that blooming!

    Thanks, Al! I've been back a couple of weeks, but I'm just now taking a moment to post a few more pictures. I hit the ground running this semester in terms of my classwork - 3 Econ classes, plus a couple others. Plenty to do!

    LOVE these! I've never tried them though. I have little chance of success keeping them alive.

    Those are great! I love the foliage on these orchids as much as the colorful blooms! Very cool. Good luck with your studies, Duane.

    Cheers,
