Dendrobium Hsinying Sweetscent 'W-3' x rhodopterygium semi-alba 'GW' 2in
This cross is a deciduous Dendrobium that drops its leaves before blooming from the mature canes in the Spring. It has white petals and a pink fuzzy lip and a sweet fragrance. A blooming size plant that appreciates lots of light. These get large and enjoy growing so that they can trail downward from the pot.
As a general rule, Dendrobiums generally enjoy warmer, wetter Spring-Fall and cooler, drier Winters.
