Introducing the captivating Dendrobium findlayanum var. oculatum, an exquisite orchid species that enchants with its fragrant flowers and distinctive appearance. Native to the Chinese Himalayas, Myanmar, Thailand, and Laos, this medium to large-sized orchid thrives in mixed forests at altitudes ranging from 1000 to 1700 meters. Boasting medium to long canes adorned with shiny, bright green, knobby growth reminiscent of beads, this orchid is truly a sight to behold.

The flowers of Dendrobium findlayanum var. oculatum are a visual symphony, featuring bright magenta petals that beautifully contrast with a striking green throat, adorned with two deep dark red spots. The medium-sized canes, reaching lengths from 8" to 24", add to the elegance of this orchid, making it a perfect addition to any orchid collection.

Cultivating these exquisite orchids requires conditions similar to those preferred by Nobile Dendrobiums. Provide intermediate to cool temperatures, medium to bright (filtered) light, and a well-draining medium such as bark or moss, especially if your growing area tends to be dry. Maintain a humidity level ranging from 50% to 80% and ensure medium air circulation for optimal growth.

To encourage blooming, it's essential to mimic the natural conditions of Dendrobium findlayanum var. oculatum. During fall to winter, gradually reduce watering, and in late winter, temporarily cease both fertilizer and water until new growth emerges. Resuming regular care with the onset of new growth will promote robust flowering during the winter and spring seasons.

Witness the stunning 3" to 4" flowers in shades ranging from white to pink, featuring purple tips with dark eyes in a yellow throat on the pink lip. Not only visually striking, but these blooms also emanate a delightful fragrance, adding a sensory dimension to your orchid-growing experience.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Embrace the allure of Dendrobium findlayanum var. oculatum as it graces your collection with its mesmerizing beauty and fragrant presence. Elevate your orchid cultivation skills with this unique species that promises a symphony of colors and scents throughout the winter and spring months.
