Dendrobium cuthbertsonii bicolor

Purchased recently from Mountain Orchids, this seedling is blooming for the first time with three of its huge flowers and two buds.  Dendrobium cuthertsonii is a micro miniature species from New Guinea.  The plants are only a few centimeters tall and are almost hidden by the huge 3 cm flowers.  This plant with its bicolor flowers is the result of careful selection and breeding of the species.


  1. Very Interesting ;) I really admire this orchid. I hope one day I can plant this beautiful orchid in my garden.

  2. Cool growing and high altitude plant, so it probably wouldn't do well with you, my friend.
