Den. parishii is found in Hainan province of China, Assam, Bangladesh, eastern Himalayas, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam in lowland forests and primary montane forests at elevations of 820 – 5,600 feet. This amazing strain comes from the Myanmar/Laos border and is known to have darkest color form of Den. parishii f. rubra.

 Den. parishii f. rubra begins blooming in late spring around late April or May (perfect for the Mothers’ Day) and continues through August. The short inflorescences carry 1 – 3 long-lasting flowers at the nodes on the upper half of 2 year old, pendulous, leafless cylindrical pseudobulbs (also called canes). The large, waxy flowers are 4 – 6 cm across in diameter and intensely fragrant with a wonderful scent of strawberries and cream.

 Den. parishii f. rubra has a compact growth habit with short cylindrical canes that are semi-deciduous. It can be mounted, or grown in pot or hanging basket. Excellent for growing under lights or on a bright windowsill. Very easy to grow and to flower. Grows well alongside Cattleya and Oncidium alliance.

These plants do not need a cold rest period in the winter like Den. nobile, and can rebloom on older canesThey like bright light and want to be well watered and fertilized regularly during the summer months. These plants need a drier winter to initiate blooming. Stop fertilizing in October and water can be stopped by the end of November. Just water often enough to prevent the pseudobulbs from shriveling. It is normal for the leaves to turn yellow and fall off during this time. Once you see the flower buds protrude from the sides of the canes you can resume watering but don't begin fertilizing until you can see new roots at the base of the newest growths. Can be grown outdoors in areas where winters are frost free. Highly recommended for the dendrobium species collector and lovers of fragrant orchids.
