Dendrobium kingianum var. album 'Elk White'

Rated: 

(White Rock Orchid) This variety is the result of a selfing of the very fine ‘Bay Islands’ clone. It is a very small cane, generally less than 3 inches high and very fat. A miniature delight! Small, pure white heavy textured flowers are presented on short stems. The foliage is light green – this is a true album. It is my personal favorite for tree fern baskets or slabs.

Needs to be kept quite moist.  We grow in rock and in less light than most kingianum clones.

These plants have 5 - 9 canes and are overflowing their 3" clay pots.  Very nice plants, indeed.  Many are beginning to show the first flower spikes of the year.

We also have a few specimen plants available - please inquire.
