Dendrobum Violet Yamaji 'Puanani' AM/AOS (5.5" pot large blooming size)
New! This Dendrobium spectabile hybrid puts on a stunning show each year, with long lasting flowers in abundance, typically in spring and lasting for two to three months. Strong canes with leafy tops reach about 20 to 22 inches in height and produce one or two bloom spikes each for several years, so as the plant adds new growth the show keeps improving. Our specimen plant in the photo is only one year older than the plants we are offering (inset photo for example). Last year it had 66 flowers, and this year well over 200! This, the ‘Puanani’ form of the cross received an Award of Merit from the American Orchid Society in 2018. The flowers are about 3 inches across, with a full star shape, and are suffused red purple with a deeper lip, usually borne 6 to 8 per spike. Bright, but diffused light, temperatures between 50 and 95, and year round watering with drying in between will produce results like our photo with ease. These plants average 8 mature canes and if ordered in the spring, may be in spike. Short Supply, so limit one per customer.
