Dendrobium Flower Baby

Dendrobium Flower Baby is a hybrid of Dendrobium cuthbertsonii with Dendrobium victoria-reginae, a much larger species with thin semi-pendant canes.  In color and patterning the flowers resemble the larger parent but the plant size has been much reduced and the canes have become thick upright pseudobulbs.  I have two plants of this cross, this plant slightly taller than the other with paler flowers.  The plant is 10 cm tall and the flowers 3 cm.


  1. Neat Ron! Do these come from me?
    I've a new batch coming to BS, these should be mostly bicolours.

    1. They didn't come to me from you but they may have come from you originally. Both my plants came from Kevin Holcombe.
