Dendrobium hekouense is a relatively newly discovered species native to China. Although the plant is a super mini, the flowers are super cool: white with purple veining and a dark, almost black, bowl-like throat. It is a very unusual flower that I fell in love with instantly. The plants bloom when very small–as few as 2-3 pseudobulbs. They come from cool climes, but I had mine in the greenhouse all last summer, and they look great (that’s over 100 degrees in summer). If you are a lover of dendrobiums or miniatures (or better yet BOTH), you must have this guy.
Cool to warm temperatures
