Dendrobium pendulum

Dendrobium pendulum - Flower photo by Richard LindbergThe Speaker at the Sonoma County Orchid Society meeting last night was Peter Lin. He talked about the genus Dendrobium and the various subgroups. More important, he brought some Dendrobium species plants for the opportunity table. I should have bought more tickets because I only got one plant.

Dendrobium pendulum - Plant photo by Richard LindbergDendrobium pendulum grows throughout Southeast Asia. It is deciduous, warm to hot growing and fragrant. Grow in very bright light including full sun. Dry but not completely dry winter rest. It blooms in spring from old canes.

I haven't decided what to do with the plant. I am inclined to mount it. It would make a nice show that way. I have time to decide new growth has not started. It could even be that it will bloom yet this year. That would be exciting.
