Dendrobium Gina Perlite

Dendrobium Gina Perlite is a hybrid of two small Oxyglossum Dendrobiums from New Guinea, Dendrobium prasinum and Dendrobium cuthbertsonii.  This particular clone has the name "Crystal White" and has very large flowers for the plant, 4 cm long) but flowers that are by no means crystal white.  They are a very pale yellow (the photos reproduce the color accurately).  The plant is larger than Dendrobium cuthbertsonii, 4-5 cm in height.  It is growing at present in a small clay pot in sphagnum moss.
