A small stature plant that I am growing it mounted, intermediate with moderately bright light.
Very nice, Marni. After 12 years of growing orchids the diminutive Dendrobium species are still my favorites.
This species is showcased nicely by your photos.
Thanks for bumping this one up Jacob! I missed it the first time, but it is very nice.
I know this is an old thread, but I just got a plant from Andy's and wonder if it can be grown under the same conditions as cuthbertsonii. He lists it as a warm grower, but I know that it comes from mountainous rainforests of Vanuatu. I googled and found that their year round temperatures are pretty stable between 65-75 F. My temperatures are 55-80. Can anybody share their thoughts?
I have the species that Andy sells as gnomus in my cool greenhouse where I grow cuthbertsonii. I grow it in a higher spot in the greenhouse, but not that much different temperatures than for cuthbertsonii. I've had it for a few years; it grows and blooms for me, but probably a bit slower than if it was grown warmer.
I'm growing it in my intermediate house (56 to 80F) and it has grown well and bloomed nicely the last few years. I may have to try it in my warm house.
Thank you, guys. I think it should grow well then under my conditions.
Marni, and William, does it bloom once or twice a year for both of you? Are the flowers long lasting?
Once a year for me and the flowers do last a long time.
Do you give this one any dry rest? I've had my plant for two years and it bloomed wonderfully the first year when I got it. Last year it didn't and I wonder if it is because I grew it as moist as cuthbertsonii.
I've never given it a dry rest. I do find that it is an irregular bloomer. You might check Baker's book on Dendrobium to see the climate charts.
I have to agree.
