Dendrobium Medalist 'Mikado'
Dendrobium Medalist 'Mikado' is new to the US Market and comes from Yamamato Dendrobiums in Japan. They have sold their Hawaii growing location and it is unclear if mature plants of this variety will be available again in the immediate future. It has large pure white flowers with yellow and dark purple in the throat that are nearly 4" across. During the growing season it prefers lots of water, regular feeding and bright light. Stop feeding after growths mature and cut back somewhat on watering from fall through winter. Plants will bloom best if they get a minimum of a month of nights in the 50's or lower, so it is best grown outside until frost, or in an intermediate greenhouse. This plant is in a 4" round pot (keep it potbound for best blooming) and is about 30" tall.
