Latouria-type Dendrobiums are vigorous growers and easy bloomers provided they are given enough light. As a general rule, dendrobiums generally enjoy warmer, wetter Spring-Fall and cooler, drier Winters. This plant resembles the classic Den. Chocolate Chip but with slightly larger, more purple coloration. Flowers are white with purple speckling and maintain a sweet cinnamon scent as blooms mature. Does not require a winter rest period.
