Dendrobium amboinense Hook. 1856, The flowers are ephemeral and highly beautiful.
I grow this plant outside in a spot where it gets a few hours of full morning sun and shade for the rest of the day. The plant has thrived in my garden which is located at an altitude of 300 mts in the central mountains of the Island of Puerto Rico. This is the first time it has bloomed and it is clear it still has quite a bit to grow to achieve full sized adult canes. In the last few months it has been raining almost every day but this has not bothered this plant at all. The flowers last a single day, but I don't mind, there are many things in life that are like that.
