Dendrobium loddigesii ‘Marisa’ - cute little creeping dendrobium; the blooms are pink with a yellow throat

 Dendrobium loddigesii ‘Marisa’
     This is a neat species dendrobium that grows beautifully both plaqued and potted. It is an Asian species that needs a cooler/dryer rest in the winter, followed by lots of moisture in the spring and summer. Follow its needs and it will bloom up a storm for you! Check out the photo at Jay’s Internet Orchid Photo Encyclopedia at Our flower picture is nice---but this one’s “way cool” and I doubt we'll ever get one this interesting...but you just never know!
