Dendrobium x suffusum

Dendrobium suffusum
This little Australian native orchid currently flowering - it’s dendrobium x suffusum, natural hybrid between dendrobium kingianum and dendrobium gracilicaule. It’s a medium size plant with many small flowers and very sweet scent.

Being native orchid, it happily flowers year after year without any special requirements - it likes plenty of light, plenty of moisture during spring and autumn and a bit dryer in summer.
The color of the flowers ranges from white through various shades of pink and I have seen dark, deep mauve color of this orchid as well.

 Because if it’s adaptability, this specie can be grown in a wide range of situations always rewarding with many beautiful blooms.
