Default Dendrobium crumenatum - pigeon orchid

i will start by saying that this is a somewhat gratuitous thread- there are many others on this forum but they are old and they are mostly geared to questions, this is just showing off


and of course sharing culture notes for others to benefit from


this is how they get the nickname - i believe- when the flowers are fading, they look a lot like fat little birds- i see ptarmigan but, to each their own, no one asks me

when fresh, the flowers have a shimmery and crystalline quality

i have approximately 12 small keikis from this planted on various things around my life (yard and neighborhood beyond) but i was foolish and used small pieces rather than big enough...a few years it will be nice...


the mother, well, she is a beast

this is a former tomato trellis that is 5' tall...

the scent in the day is divine- like citrus and soap

i think of this as a basic, "easy" orchid...i dont know what that means in practice, but everyone should have one.



this is a sophomoric write up BUT, there are smart people who also are into this orchid.

Those are ptarmigan, indeed!

I really like the unusual p-bulbs too. Reminds me of Den. hancockii or Den. linearifolium. Nice growing!

so, i have to ask, does yours bloom exactly 9 days after a rainfall event?! or, perhaps exhibit some of the distinct characteristics defined by the article? yes, i finally went back and read it, and yes, it was quite interesting!

So I have a fun “out” for the scientists in this one. It rains way way tooo often to know. I can tell you that it really only blooms in the rainy season a d it blooms almost all season. So I just assume it rained nine days ago!
