Dendrobium Gatton Sunray, registered in 1919 and still among the best
This orchid has been with me for many years. It is a cross of Dendrobium pulchellum and Den. Illustre which itself is a cross of Den. pulchellum and Den. chrysotoxum. This plant can grow into a huge specimen. My plant remains relatively small mainly because the local weather is slightly too wet for its needs and it ocassionally loses canes to rot even though it is planted in a basket.
