Dendrobium cuthbertsonii (three new plants)
I've posted many pictures of Dendrobiuum cuthbertsonii in the past. These are photos of three new acquisitions, one a nice clear orange and the other two bicolors (somewhat hard to see on the third photo). Dendrobium cuthbertsonii is a micro-miniature species from New Guinea with huge (for the size of the plant) and long-lasting flowers (six months or more). The species is considered to be difficult, but with the right conditions is relatively easy to grow and flower. It prefers cool temperatures, high light and constant moisture to do well.
