Dendrobium hellwigianum

I have two different plants of Dendrobium hellwigianum, one of them a darker pink and with less of a bluish cast to the flowers.  The species seems easy enough to grow when given cool temperatures and high light.  In this case the plant is 10 cm tall and the individual flowers between 3 and 4 cm and usually produced in pairs at the top of the pseudobulb and between the narrow channeled leaves.  Like all the Oxyglossum Dendrobiums the flowers are very long-lasting.

    1. It generally blooms just once a year over the summer and into autumn with occasional flowers at other times. Both of my plants bloom about the same time.
