Plants are flowering size in 4” pots.
This is a reverse peloric or petaloid hybrid. Instead of producing 2 petals and a lip, the flower produces a petal in lieu of the labellum. This creates a flower with a much fuller and closed form. Plants are comparatively compact. Expect plants to mature at 14” tall. Inflorescences will be 8” – 12” long. Each cane can produce 1-3 inflorescences. Each can carry 5 – 10 flowers each. Individual flowers are 2” – 3” across. Sepals and petals are a dark rich pink. The bases of sepals and petals can be a lighter color lending a splashed-petaled effect. Plants will grow well with Cattleya preferring brighter light. These are evergreen Dendrobium and should not drop their leaves. With the influence of the Phalaenopsis-type Dendrobium these can benefit from a temperature drop into the 50’s when growths have matured. This will virtually guarantee flowering if light is sufficient.
