Dendrobium cuthbertsonii

Dendrobium cuthbertsonii
I've posted pictures of this species before, but thought I'd post another. This is probably my favorite orchid and I have it in many different colors, a couple of which are shown below. The species is from the highlands of New Guinea and is one to two inches tall with flowers that are huge for the size of the plant. Not only does it come in a rainbow of colors, but these amazing flowers will last six to eight months. The photo shows the size of the flowers in relation to the plant, the beautifully pebbled foliage and the compact growth habit. It is growing in a two and half inch pot and has even more flowers now than in the photo.
