Dendrobium glomeratum 'Pink Giant' HCC/AOS x pseudoglomeratum 'Shortie'
Dendrobium glomeratum grows on the Moluccas Islands above 3500 feet. It is warm to hot growing, needs bright light and blooms in spring and summer on old, pendant canes. Dendrobium (Den) contains 1200 species from all parts of Asia and the Pacific. Some like a dry winter rest, all like to dry out between watering. Flowers are long lasting.
Dendrobium psuedoglomeratum grows in Papua and New Guinea in low altitude forests near rivers. It is warm to hot growing, fragrant and blooms spring and fall. It is deciduous and can be watered more than most Dendrobiums provided it is in a fast-draining medium.
