Default Dendrobium tortile--The Twisted Orchid

This plant was a gift from a member of my orchid society, in exchange for a maxillaria I gave him. Lucky me! I'd never seen or heard of this, but I love the twisted petals. It has a faint fragrance, too. My iPhone doesn't really do justice to the lavender veining in the throat of the bloom.

I love this species. My plant blooms on and off throughout the Summer, after a late Spring bonanza- Lots of water and it hangs in the garden for the warmer months. You may even be able to year 'round it in Benecia. 40F seems to be no problem.

Thanks, Regelian, I'm glad to have that information. I had it inside last winter, but I will try outside under plastic this coming year.
