    Default New Dendrobium from the Philippines

    Hello and update to all.

    Hope all is well.

    This plant is officially recognized as Dendrobium bicolense in a publication in Germany as of Nov 2006.

    I also gave it a common name BICOLANA to honor lovely and charming ladies from Bicol.

    My grandma, mom and two aunts I specially acknowledged for their help in finding this plant and supported my undertakings in many ways.

    This is part of my ISLAND Beauty series. I decided to attach Filipino common names to share our language and enrich other's vocabulary.

    I also have DIWATA "fairy", PRINCESA "princess" among others.

    Best,
    Amy

    Congratulations on naming a new species, Amy! And what a lovely way to both honor your grandmother, mother, and aunts while also promoting knowledge of your language!
