Dendrobium cuthbertsonii x glomeratum

This is another unregistered hybrid of Dendrobium cuthbertsonii, this with Dendrobium glomeratum, a large cane-type Dendrobium, also from New Guinea, as is Dendrobium cuthbertsonii.  Like most such hybrid it is much easier to grow than the parents and is more temperature tolerant.  It has huge flowers, 4 cm long on a plant that is only 10 cm tall.

  2. Nice strong color on that one. As I said before-some of the cuthbertsonii hybrids are a wash. This one is certainly worthy of having around.

    1. Yes, this is extraordinary, in my opinion. One of the better cuthbertsonii hybrids both for the size and color of the flowers.

    1. The hybrids of D. cuthbertsonii always seem to be more vigorous than the species, though I have no difficulty with the species.
