Hello From Vermont/Mystery Dendrobium
Default Hello From Vermont/Mystery Dendrobium

Hey Everyone!

My name is Tom and I've been gleaning information from these forums and all of you for many years - and I've decided to try to get more connected with other people out there. I'm a botanist and interested in so many plant species -for instance I literally just ordered Opuntia humifusa cuttings for my outdoor garden in the spring - but in my indoor garden orchids have been and are a big one. I've been off my game recently in terms of my orchid collection but a recently budding Dendrobium nobile given to me by my plant taxonomy professor (7 years ago) is restoking my interest. I've attached the picture but basically she said that she had never seen it bloom and I've been playing with dry out times over the winter for a long time with no success. This year however I completed neglected my indoor plants and I'm being rewarded...not a great life lesson there but either way here's a picture. I'm excited to see what it could be and any help with a positive ID of cultivar or species. It'll be great to hear y'alls input.

My orchid list right now is:

Encyclia tampensis
Laelia purpurea
Dendrobium spp? (budding up)
Leptotes bicolor
CTNA Why Not


I'd like to have, at some point some really nice big examples of den. aphyllum and den. speciosum oh there's so many. Any one have any good leads on places to pick up divisions or unknown plants for cheap?

Thanks so much and I'm looking forward to contributing

Hello and welcome! Did your professor give you a tag with the plant or did they just say it was a nobile type Dendrobium? Also, Slo orchids is selling divisions of Den. speciosum for pretty cheap. I got a speciosum division last summer from a fellow grower and man, that is a sturdy orchid. Gorgeous too. Itís probably a good time to get divisions as well since they should be starting to send out their spring growth in another couple of months

Thanks for the welcome! My professor didn't know anything about it other than it was a "dendrobium orchid" I discovered somewhere along the way and suspected that it was a nobile type. It looks like the flower buds are starting to turn whiteish - I'll post a picture when it pops.

Thanks for the SLO lead - I'll check it out.

VermontKingdom! Glad you decided to get to know us a bit better and participate! I lurked for years myself.

And kudos for finally getting that orchid to bloom! LOL on the "life lessons." Nobiles are kinda like teenagers... you get more out of them when you pretend to ignore.

Welcome! You could have gotten a bushel basket of prickly pears from me! They're like ostrich ferns, the rats of my garden! Glad you're on board.

DollytheHun!! You just insulted my favorite plant?!? They are lovely, graceful, green wonders! And if all the ones you sent me don't make it through the winter, I'm gonna cry and you will send me more rats! :
