Orchid of the month: November

Dendrobium limpidum

Dendrobium limpidum

Dendrobium limpidum is a riot of colour and not just once a year. The pseudobulbs or canes hang freely, are quite hard and chunky and densely leafy. Clusters of vibrant pink flowers appear two or three times a year and are long lived.

For many years this charming species was known as Dendrobium dichaeoides, a similar plant and this confusion was sorted out by André Schuiteman in his book ‘A Guide to Dendrobium of New Guinea’. Established young plants, flowering and flowering size, now available, price £18 plus £5 postage.
