Yellow-Green Dendrobium

Latest from my balcony garden: Another dendrobium variety of orchid is in full bloom. Just one stick with 9 flowers, the bud at the tip of the stick fell off in its initial stage. The color is unique: yellow-green and purple.

It is colloquially called the “Thai restaurant orchids.” These types of orchids are Dendrobium hybrids and can be found at Thai restaurants that decorate their tables with freshly-cut flowers. They come in many colors (white, green, purple, pink, yellow and more) and require a fairly warm environment. I had the white and pink variety and this is a newly acquired one. When the sales guy told me the orchid will be of green color, I found it hard to believe him, but now I do and I am planning to see what other varieties he has.
