Dendrobium Burana Sunshine x Dendrobium discolor
The influence of Dendrobium discolor is unmistakable in this hybrid. Unlike Den. discolor, this plant blooms in a relatively small plant. I love the color and the ease of culture of this orchid. I grow it outside, under saran shade cloth. The local climate is hot, not warm, and during the dry season the plants experience much drier conditions than normal. However this plant takes it all in stride and grows well without any special care. It is in a terracota pot with very clean and hard bark. It has been my experience that these orchids resent mightly any kind of media that stays soggy for a long time, this usually results in the loss of roots.
