Dendrobium Illusion

This is one of several plants I own of the hybrid of Dendrobium cuthbertsonii and Dendrobium lawesii.  The cross has reduced the size of Dendrobium lawesii, a species with long pendant canes, and has produced a plant with erect growths and flowers that are more open (those of Dendrobium lawesii are tubular).  The hybrid has canes 12 cm tall with 3 cm flowers that are produced in clusters.  The leaves have the "pebbled" appearance of the Dendrobium cuthbertsonii parent.
