Dendrobium hybrids

My collection contains species plants from the Americas. The Sonoma collection is Cattleya hybrids. Those are the goals of the collections but not the reality. Other orchids find their way into the greenhouse.

They are very well suited to a greenhouse environment and produce many long-lasting flowers. I have all of these in limestone pieces where the water drains right through and the only thing that captures water is the plant roots.
