Queen Victoria's Dendrobium Orchid
This Filipino native hails from the high mountainous regions of several Philippine islands; growing alongside tropical rhododendrons, azaleas and myrtles. The pendulous pseudobulbs elongate into cane like stems that host clusters of deep lilac-blue flowers from late February thru March. Relatively warm day temperatures and cool nights plus high humidity and a distinct dormancy are all characteristics associated with successful care for this species.
