Dendrobium seranicum 'Brendan'

Dendrobium seranicum is a high-altitude species from New Guinea that loves cool temperatures, high light and lots of water and humidity.  I grow it mounted on a piece of cork bark.  The plant is 8 cm tall and the very long-lasting flowers are 3 cm.  It belongs to the section Oxyglossum which includes some of my favorite orchids.  They have brightly colored long-lasting flowers, and with a few exceptions are miniatures.


  1. I would love to post what I just said out loud but I don't think many would be amused. That is by far the best, most well grown clone I have ever seen of this species. My guy is a runt by all comparison. KUDOS Ron. It is another to be exceptionally proud of.

    1. Thanks for the kind comments. This thing grows like a weed for me.
