Dendrobium glomeratum 'Pink Giant' HCC/AOS x pseudoglomeratum 'Shortie'

Dendrobium glomeratum 'Pink Giant' HCC/AOS x pseudoglomeratum 'Shortie'This Dendrobium hybrid was sitting off to one side looking scraggly when all of a sudden a couple of bunches of flowers opened.

Dendrobium glomeratum 'Pink Giant' HCC/AOS x pseudoglomeratum 'Shortie' - Plant photo by Richard LindbergBoth of the parents are from islands near Indonesia. The flowers have a similar look. I assume the idea of making the cross was to increase the blooming season and make a smaller plant. The canes are very thin and perhaps 18 inches tall. I tried to take a plant picture but it didn't turn out well.

The pot you see is holding the real pot. This is for stability as I am sure the small pot would not stand by itself. The plant is in the display area right now, but as soon as it is ready to go back into the general population I will re-pot and feed it through the summer. I want to encourage a couple of new growths I see at the base of the plant.
