Dendrobium cariniferum 'Christopher'

Dendrobium cariniferum is a showy,  broad-ranging, Nigrohirsutae section species known from Himalaya China / Assamto Vietnam.  It is described as occurring in humid forests at elevations of 450 to 1800 meters.  Its rather broad range probably accounts for why I find it to be fairly adaptable to cultivation.  

My mature plant of this species is about 16" tall.  During late winter-spring, it develops numerous 2-3 flowered clusters of very attractive, heavy substance, waxy white & orange flowers.  

Blooming Size Keiki-grown plant. Each bearing several canes of which average 6-14" tall, established on aprox. 8" X 4" hardwood shingle-slabs.
