    Default Dendrobium farmeri

    Interesting species I bought the plant as a crossing of Den farmeri alba x dendrobium farmeri yellow and I was excited as the plant begin to produce the spike, combination of yellow color and white usually the outcome always white color is more dominant. To my surprise the inflorescence is more than one foot one of the longest spike that i ever seen and I like it so much. Most of the farmeri the spike rarely very long.
