A flask of 15+ seedlings of Dendrobium Flinders ‘Grant Garret’ x speciosum var. curvicaule ‘Day Light Moon’ HCC. Absolutely vigorous and chunky plants with really great tops, leaves and canes and ripper root systems. A similar cross of Flinders GG x falcorostrum ‘Anembo’ is very famous. This cross likely to be evry bit as good. Very ready for deflask. Could be flowered in 3-4 years. Please note that plants are sent deflasked and transferred into a robust plastic container buffered with sphagnum moss to minimise plant damage and keep postage costs down. From long experience, I’d recommend deflask singly into 75mm pots or 100mm community pots of lightly packed sphagnum moss and fertilise with dilute soluble fertiliser regularly. Keep the sphagnum moist to wet. Repot into your preferred dendrobium growing mix after first repot in spring 2022. Should be rippers. Sent Express post after deflask and transfer to robust plastic packaging usually 1-2 days only but, occasionally, up to 3-4 days with current Aust post service situation.

Description

As pictured –  flask of 15+ seedlings of a cross between Dendrobium bigibbum var. superbum x affine ‘Margaret’. Fantastic parents. A brilliant cross. I’ve found that Den affine copes very well with my long, cold winter days so this hybrid will do very well for me and will do very well up in NSW and Queensland too. Very valuable as breeders too, I think. 

Very ready for deflask with sound top growth including decent canes and extensive roots. Check the pics. A fairly high light requiring cross. 

Sent by Express Post deflasked and transferred into a light weight, robust plastic container protected with moist sphagnum moss and / or styrene foam beads. 

They do well if mounted or potted in loosely packed sphagnum moss or Clay Pellets or small bark. Fertilise regularly, straight away with dilute soluble fertiliser only if in sphagnum moss and / or small amount of pelletised Chicken Manure such as Rapid Raiser or Dynamic Lifter. Place out with the rest of your similar plants. Don’t mollycoddle too much.
