Dendrobium adae – 365 days of orchids – day 1494

This lovely dendrobium species is native to the northeastern Australia Cape York Peninsula,  northeastern Australia, where it grows in cool misty forest from 700m to 1200m as an epiphyte or lithophyte. The flowers are large for Australian dendrobiums, very fragrant during the day, and of a wonderful wavy texture.

Our plant here is still a small division but growing well. Over time plants will produce pseudobulbs more than double this height and up to six flowers on a spike – a treat worth waiting for.
