UPDATED 12/18/2015

Dendrobium is a huge genus of orchids. It was established by Olof Swartz in 1799 and today contains about 1,200 species. The genus occurs in diverse habitats throughout much of south, east and southeast Asia, including the Philippines, Borneo, Australia, New Guinea, Solomon Islands and New Zealand. The name is from the Greek dendron ("tree") and bios ("life"); it means "one who lives on trees", or, essentially, "epiphyte".

In 1981, Briegar reclassified all terete-leaved Dendrobiums from Australia and New Guinea into a new genus, Dockrillia. The Winika orchid from New Zealand was formerly D. cunninghamii, but has now been moved into a monotypic genus Winika. In 1989, Clements upgraded the D. speciosum complex into individual species; similarly, the D. bigibbum complex (which contains the well-known Cooktown Orchid of Australia, D. phalaenopsis) has recently been split up.[by Wikipedia]

Den. Roy Tokunaga 'Dark Lip x Freckles'
 
This is a great plant that has been used extensively in the breeding of many Latouria-type Dendrobium hybrids! A very reliable and prolific bloomer with long-lasting flowers. Old canes can continue to produce flower spikes for several years. Picture is that of one of its offsprings. A must for your collection.

First year bloomers with 2-4 flower stems already.
Good size plants ready to be up-potted once done with blooming.

In 4.25" pots - In Spike/Buds/Bloom @ $3750
