Den. stratiotes alba 'Thabo Surprise' - 50mm

Dendrobium stratiotes alba 'Thabo Surprise' is a mericlone from an unusual alba variety of stratiotes.

This alba form is rarely seen and available, and being a mericlone, should flower true to form.

Den. stratiotes range exists from Irian Jaya (western New Guinea), Halmahera and Morotai Islands in the Moluccas to name a few.

stratiotes attain a height of up 2 meters, but is more common at 80cm. We are not certain how tall this one will grow.

One of our larger standard stratiotes, has carried flowers continuously for over 3 years. The flowers are very long lasting and not seasonal and are large in size for the spatulata section.

Ideal conditions are

  • medium to high light that is filtered, 
  • warm to hot locations
  • in a well drained mix that dries before it is watered again.

They can be grown on a mount.
