Dendrobium Illusion 'Firecracker' HCC/AOS

Dendrobium Illusion is a primary hybrid between Dendrobium cuthbertsonii and Dendrobium lawesii. D. cuthbertonii is very dominant in it's hybrid offspring and to find that these stay rather small is no suprise. The mature plants seldom exceed 4" tall and the growth habit is of a desireable clumpy, not trailing habit. It is a more easily grown plant than D. cuthbertsonii itself although it still prefers temps a bit on the cooler side.

'Firecracker', awarded an HCC/AOS In November of 2017, is a nice vibrant two-tone color of red-orange with paler yellow-orange petals giving a bold two-toned color effect.  So far, it is the very finest of this color form of the cross (sharpest / cleanest color).

These are potted/established in small clay pots.
