    Well I should be getting some new Dend species in the mail next week and was wondering if any of you guys had some experience with these or had any pointers you could give me. The species are: Dendrobium kanjanaburense, Dendrobium oligophyllum and Dendrobium peguanum. Thanks in advance. Actual experience would be helpfull.


    PS I have the baker sheets for oligophyllum and peguanum.

    Ohh yes I have Jon, way before asking anywhere else. Dend. oligophyllum is pretty easy to find and the same goes for peguanum, it's the other I can't find any info on. Do you have any info to offer or maybe some other alternative as to where to look for information?

    I would recommend Googling a species called kanburiense. "Kanjanaburense" is not a valid species name.

    Thank you my dearest for the name info my Orchid Guru. I just searched and all I found was images and listing of that species in list that stated that it belongs to the genus Dendrobium. I don't know but, guess I will have to keep on searching.

    Neyra, have you checked Jay's Specie Site for this one? I don't have any of these but his site usually has temp. and culture info. listed. Google Jay's orchid species and it should come up. His site is a wealth of info.

    It is in Baker's Dendrobium book. Intermediate to warm growing, moderate water in spring through fall and drier in the winter.

    Forgot to mention, I don't grow this plant, so I am passing along very basic information.

    Thank you Jon and Marni. FYI Jon when I searched that site came up but in German which I don't understand.
