Today we finally look at the start of the month, the Dendrobium spectabile and his curly, wild flowers!
▼▼▼More info below!▼▼▼
Dendrobium spectabile is a Latouria type of Dendrobium orchid. More information on its natural habitat here http://www.orchidspecies.com/denspectabile.htm
This orchid produces typical Dendrobium canes, which plump up towards the upper part, but remain very thin at the base. They have around 4 leaves on top and produce a flower spike from one of the upper nodes.
The flowers are wild in appearance, the petals and sepals are thin and curled on the edges and around themselves. The lip is broader but it has the same curling tendency. There is a tessellated burgundy brown pattern on all its corolla.
There is also a mild fragrance reminding of spring flowers, but it isn’t perfumed.
This orchid enjoys warm temperatures, high (Cattleya) light and doesn’t appreciate drying out. The canes will shrivel fast if the medium approaches dryness, so make sure you keep up with watering!
