Dendrobium brymerianum

orchidnickFebruary 20, 2014

Found in northeastern India, north Thailand, Burma, northern Laos, and southwestern China as a warm to cold grower. Does not need a dry winter rest. At the recommendation of the person I got it from I'm growing it cold. This is the unusual all yellow version, somewhat like an alba. Normally they have an orange throat.

Warm to cold? Really? I've only ever heard it as a cold grower from people who have tried it. If this is true, might be worth a second look for me! I've avoided it for years.

That's beautiful, Nick! I've tried to grow this one, and from what you said, I may keep it too dry in the winter- makes me want to try it again.

I quote Jay Phal:

elevations of 1100 to 1900 meters as a small to medium sized, warm to cool growing epiphyte

The person I bought it from recommended cool and no dry winter rest.
