Dendrobium Mountain Magic

Dendrobium Mountain Magic is a hybrid of the tiny Dendrobium cuthbertsonii (section Oxyglossum) and the much larger, cane-type Dendrobium pseudoglomeratum (section Pedilonum).  Both the parents are from Papua New Guinea.  The result is a very small plant, less than 15 cm tall with cane-like stems and clusters of pink flowers with an orange lip.  Since both parents have flowers about the same size in spite of the difference in plant size, the flowers are approximately 3 cm in size.  It is a profuse bloomer, reblooming from older canes.

    1. I like that, Marti. Nice description. Maybe should have been named that instead of Mountain Magic.
