There about 1,200 Dendrobium species and numerous hybrids that are widely cultivated. Mostly native to Southeast Asia and Australia they grow in a wide and diverse habitat in the wild. Most are epiphytes, meaning they attach themselves to other plants for support only. It is not a parasitic relationship. Breeding has increased the color range and flowering time for Dendrobiums.
Since it is Sunday and Today’s Flowers here is a bonus shot of an unusual Vanda type Orchid.
Vanda ‘Robert’s Delight x Miss Rattana’
Super nice color on this Vanda Orchid. They looked like Pansies.
