Dendrobium Maiden Charlotte

Dendrobium Maiden Charlotte - Flower photo by Richard LindbergInstead of a speaker, the SCOS had BINGO night. My one and only prize was this cute Dendrobium Maiden Charlotte. It is a primary hybrid of Dendrobium rhodostictum x Dendrobium aberrans.

It is in bloom and has two new spikes. As you can see it appears to need repotting. I will decide about dividing once it is out of the pot.

Just from seeing it in the pot my first impression is that it will not divide well. All the pseudobulbs seem to radiate from the center and a division might be lop-sided.
