New York Orchid Show 2013: Dendrobiums

Dendrobium kingianum

Dendrobium braianense

Dendrobium Burana Greenstar

Dendrobium cymbidioides (Epigeneium cymbidioides)

     This cool miniature orchid gets its name "cymbidioides" in reference to its resemblance to cymbidium flowers.  However, the orchid is actually a dendrobium.  It belongs to a group of species formerly known as "epigeneiums".  The genus was subsumed into the larger "dendrobium" grouping around 2004, but the term remains in common use.

Dendrobium hemimelanoglossum

  1. Love your blog and pictures, I believe the last one is Dendrobium 'Sonia' a hybrid with a Phal as you correctly identified!
