Dendrobium

tucker_sp(Z4 MN)July 3, 2013

This was originally sold to me labelled D. crepidiferum. Jay's site calls it glomeratum, and I've also seen it labelled D. sulawesii. As far as I can see, the only real difference is that this plant is bigger than most, about 3 feet tall, and grows straight upright, never horizontally or pendant. Amazing flowers, whatever you call it.

Another pair of inflorescences showing buds ready to open - they don't turn pink until they're open.

Enjoy!

Looks exactly like mine (see previous post). Got it from Marnie Turkel who recommends growing it on the cool side which is what I do. New growths go straight up but then bend over and become pendulous as they lengthen. Jay uses the same photography on both the crepidiferum and glomerulatum site but calls one a warm to hot grower, the other a cool to intermediate grower.

Definitely a nice plant no matter what one calls it.
