Dendrobium bracteosum

Some of my dendrobium orchids started new flowering season and this little beauty currently in bloom. It’s dendrobium bracteosum native to north coast of New Guinea. In it’s natural habitat it grows in hot, steamy coastal forests in clumps mostly attached to mangroves, exposed to bright light and all elements.

I have seen many color variations of this dendrobium - yellow, pink, red, orange and of course white and the flowers are very long lasting constantly produced by the plant.
In the home situation it’s an easy orchid to grow in our warm climate  - bright light and plenty of watering is all it needs to showcase it’s beautiful blooms.
