Introducing the Dendrobium Roy Tokunaga - a magnificent Latouria-type Dendrobium and a primary hybrid of the esteemed Dendrobium atroviolaceum and Dendrobium johnsoniae. This rare gem is not commonly found in the market, making it a prized addition to any orchid enthusiast's collection.

Description: Dendrobium Roy Tokunaga is a true testament to the beauty of orchids. This splendid hybrid blooms in clusters of medium-sized white flowers, each adorned with vivid purple striations on the interior lip. The petals themselves feature delightful spotting, ranging from light to heavy, on their anterior side. What sets this hybrid apart is its remarkable longevity; the blooms can grace your space for an impressive 6 to 12 weeks, ensuring you enjoy their captivating presence for an extended period.

This variety belongs to the Latouria group and is considered intermediate in size, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a stunning yet manageable orchid. Dendrobium Roy Tokunaga forms charming clumps of canes that can reach up to 16 inches in height. These canes are bedecked with shiny paired leaves that provide a striking backdrop for the exquisite blossoms.

One of the most enticing aspects of Dendrobium Roy Tokunaga is its remarkable flowering pattern. It generously produces clusters of creamy white flowers with striking purple spots and stripes. The remarkable part is that these blossoms can last for two to three months, ensuring your orchid is in bloom for an extended duration. Even more impressively, this hybrid blooms on both old and new growths, offering the potential for twice-yearly displays of its enchanting flowers.

Cultivation Tips:

  • Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight for your Dendrobium Roy Tokunaga. Avoid exposing it to harsh, direct sunlight, as this can scorch the delicate leaves and flowers.

  • Temperature: Maintain a temperature range of 60-85°F (15-30°C) for this orchid. It appreciates cooler nights to simulate its natural habitat.

  • Watering: Water thoroughly, allowing the potting medium to dry slightly between waterings. During the growing season, typically spring and summer, water more frequently. In the winter, reduce watering.

  • Humidity: These orchids thrive in high humidity levels, ideally around 60-80%. Consider using a humidity tray or a humidifier, especially in drier climates.

  • Fertilization: Feed your Dendrobium Roy Tokunaga with a balanced orchid fertilizer at half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. Reduce or stop fertilization during the dormant winter months.

  • Potting: Repot your orchid every 2-3 years or when you notice it has outgrown its pot. Use a well-draining orchid mix.

  • Pruning: Prune old canes that no longer produce flowers to encourage new growth and ensure a compact and healthy plant.
