Hi all,

I was hoping someone might be able to help identify these Dendrobium NOIDs. They flowered in early spring and have now finished flowering.

My two plants (a gift from my mother-in-law):

Large:
Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/c0348d Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/613b57 Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/fc2d5d

Small (I assume this is the same cultivar as the above):
Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/02508b Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/44910a


My mother-in-law's (several large plants):

Two neighbouring plants that appear to be the same cultivar:
Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/61f096 Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/861d2e Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/7f2922

Another plant - presumably different? Was in a different spot.
Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/3a1134 Thumb of 2016-11-30/Australis/b45efb

All the blooms were quite small - around 2cm across (or just under inch). Didn't measure them, so don't know exactly.

Thanks.

I would think different cultivars of Dendrobium kingianum. Surely they are strongly and nicely scented?

I agree . they look exactly like my kingianium.

I was thinking kingianum as well! Great minds think alike! Rolling on the floor laughing

Are they scented?

What media are they planted in??? The two that are very 'red' (the leaves & psuedobulbs) might benefit from a dose of epsom salt...

I'm afraid I don't recall if they were scented or not...

The two I have are planted in Osmocote Orchid Mix (I repotted the large one after it had finished flowering). The others were probably in the same, though not certain - the media has likely long ago broken down. I'll pass the suggestion for epsom salts along to my mother-in-law. Thanks.

Regarding the scent - Waldor Orchids, a well established Orchid grower here in NJ would place huge plants of Den kings at the corners of his exhibits at Orchid Shows when in season. The beautiful, strong scent would really make you linger and come back for another look. Just wonderful!
