Dendrobium cuthbertsonii bicolor

This is one of a number of bicolor Dendrobium cuthbertsonii I own, and this is one of the better examples, with very large and very open flowers.  Like other examples of this species the plant itself is tiny, only 2 cm tall, with 4 cm flowers.  Some of the plants of this species I grow mounted.  This is grown in a clay pot in live sphagnum, but does no better than those that are mounted.


  1. that's one of the most exciting colour combination in that species! Not such a big plant, and already so floriferous, for sure an excellent clone!

    1. This may very well be a polyploid, possibly 4N. It came from a man who has done quite a bit of work in producing polypoids.

  2. Outstanding, Ron! Just outstanding!!!!
