  • Regular price $75.00

Den. anosmum var. semi-album 'Dark Eye' – A rare form of this species with a white petals and very dark eyes on lip. They reach full bloom in late March-April and remain in bloom for about four weeks. Some of these are in spikes again in our greenhouse on July. Under cooler conditions, the flowers may last longer. A well grown pseudobulb can produce over 100 flowers. 

These species need a cold winter rest in order to bloom. Blooms on old and newly matured leafless canes. They are heavy feeders and want abundant water in their growing cycle from April to October. Grow them in an area of filtered sunlight. Avoid direct midday sunlight, unless you are close to the mountains and have a lot of cloud cover. Plants look better with fully growths when they are not in bloom!

NOTE: This type of Dendrobium drops its leaves just before coming into flower season. Once the plant is done flowering new growths will emerge from the base of the plant and produce keikies along the canes.
