Similarity to Den. Fire Coral

Hi Albert,

When I tried to look for Den. formosum , I found this posting of Den. Fire Coral which Anton posted in 2008.

In comparing, I found 90% similarities?

nigro-hirsute dendrobiums

Hi Albert,

Something wrong here?

I agree with wellsy!

I had Den. Dawn Marie years back. It belongs to the Dendrobium group: "negro-hirsute type", as wellsy cited.

(Fine dark hairs on canes, flowers direct from canes)

Best regards!

Dendrobium formosum Roxb. var gigantea Roxburg ex Lindley 1832

Hi Albert, wellsy, ROYL, micogab,

Albert's infos might lead us to this:

'Hirsute' Den. group is divided into Nigro-Hirsute and Hirsute.

I think Albert's Flower is this one:

Dendrobium formosum Roxb. var gigantea Roxburg ex Lindley 1832 SECTION Formosae

[close to Den. formosum, we see some similarities in Den infundibulum]
Whereas, Den. senile, the fir/hair is not black]

Best regards!

I disagree

I can say with a fair degree od certainty that Alberts plant is not the species Dendrobium formosum. The photo here http://orchidsonline.com.au/node/2755 depicts Dendrobium formosum.

Alberts plant is most certainly a hybrid I believe but I am not certain if it is Dendrobium Dawn Maree at this stage.

Regards wellsy

Agree

Hi wellsy,

I totally agree with you!

Den. Dawn Maree

That is Dawn Maree!!! Some clones lack hairs while others tend to have grey or brown hairs. And if possible maybe you can post a pic of the canes.

Albert try to use a magnifying glass if you can see them.

Thanks to all of you.

Thanks to all of you. Unfortunately I cannot check the plant right now _- I will be back home in a few weeks . I will take close up photos and check the plant (hairs etc.)again.
The plant s name will be renamed.
