Dense clumps of long-lasting flowers adorn this small to medium-sized dendrobium, altogether making this a gem of an orchid. This one’s a show winner with pink paper-thin petals, although I’ve read that the colour is quite variable.
Small Dendrobium bracteousum seedlings fetch for at least MYR50 (USD17) here, which I think is quite expensive in my book, and a testament to its growing popularity. I shan’t attempt this one yet, but no harm reserving a spot on my bench.
