Dendrobium cuthbertsonii (('Pumpkin' X 'Picotee Mask') X ("Super Red"))

Dendrobium cuthbertsonii - one of the holy grails of the cool species collector/grower! Think tiny plant, wow colors, flowers that last 6 months or more, sandpaper-like foliage texture on miniature mounds ....everything about it is just awesome. 

This cross takes a great orange-bicolor and crosses with nice bright red.    Such is the nature of breeding with this species, you should expect reds, oranges, bicolors, and who knows what else.   Note: the photos are very comparable examples, not the actual parents as this was not my cross.

Growing Dendrobium cuthbertsonii is NOT for the faint of heart. These plants demand cool temps, high humidity, pure water, and are generally considered a challenge.  So please, if you're not experienced and/or are considering these for a windowsill, well, this is NOT a prime choice!
