    This particular clone of Dendrobium violaceum ('Twilight Blue') comes originally via Darrin Norton of Mountain Orchids and is notable for the blueish coloration compared with the more typical purple forms of the species. Seems to do well temp-wise alongside Dend. cuthbertsonii, but with less light.

    That's extremely beautiful! I've flasked an outcross of two unrelated such "blue" varieties, I hope some might end solid blue in the seedlings!
