This is a first bloom seedling, blooming on a very small plant. Both plant size and flower color are extremely variable with this species. I am very pleased with the flower color which can be red, orange, yellow, white, green, blue, grey, violet, purple or pink. The flowers are a little less than 2.5 cm. I am eager to see if how large the plant grows since this species can range from 3-40 cm. If it stays small it is probably var. elworthyi. It is from the highlands of New Guinea, the Moluccas and New Ireland, is cool-growing and belongs to the Oxyglossum section of the genus Dendrobium.
