Dendrobium Luwin Park x stratiotes (3.5" pot large blooming size)
New! This robust and eye catching “Antelope Flowered” Dendrobium is a new hybrid that combines 3 different species in that group, and produces very long lasting sprays off and on throughout the year. These are seedlings so the color varies from plant to plant. Out photo of 3 different ones in bloom gives you the range of outcomes we have observed so far, but there are still likely other variations we haven’t seen yet. Leafy stalks with waxy evergreen leaves can start to flower when they are only about 12 inches tall, but growths that come after can top out over 36 inches and easily produce several sprays at once. Eventually, there can be one hundred or more flowers open at once, each lasting about 3 months, sometimes longer. Kept about 65F these plants will spike any time of the year. They will tolerate 50-55F at night in winter, but may slow down in growth in that temperature range. If you have hot, humid summers, this is a great patio plant that will enjoy such conditions, kept in dappled bright light and watered regularly. These plants are overflowing 3.5” square pots and ready to go into a 6 or 8 inch pot anytime new roots are developing. Please Note: Due to the box size required for this orchid, orders from west of the Rockies or Puerto Rico will incur a surcharge of $5 in order to help offset the much higher shipping costs charged by USPS Priority Mail. Other locations will be shipped via UPS Ground and will not be affected.
