Dendrobium cuthbertsonii bicolor

I obtained this plant of Dendrobium cuthbertsonii at the Portland Orchid Society Show at which the American Orchid Society's fall meetings were held this past November.  It had one flower when I purchased it, but that soon faded.  The photos are of the plant which is now coming into bloom once again.  It is at present in a one inch clay pot in sphagnum and needs to be repotted.

    1. Thanks, Luis. I have another red/orange bicolor, but like this one even better. Got this from Tom Perlite, one of the best growers around of this species.

  3. Hi Ron,
    I understand why you like this plant the most! pink/white bicolours with good colour contrast are scarce, and this one is a very good example! hope you'll grow it as well as your other Oxyglossum outstanding specimen so you can show us a fantastic blooming in the years to come!

    1. Thanks for the kind comments, Laurent. It is very nice, isn't it, and came from the best of all growers of the Oxyglossums that I've ever met.
