A Splash of Colour

durabaculum-nindii This spectacular tropical epiphytic orchid has recently been separated into a new Genus along with D. mirbelianum (Mangrove Orchid), previously both were included with Dendrobium.  It must surely rank as the longest-caned Orchid, with the flowers pictured on a cane over 2 metres in length.

Unfortunately many Durobaculum nindii have been “saved” by avid Orchid lovers not content with seeing a plant in its natural state.   At Wild Wings & Swampy Things finding a flowering native orchid which has naturally established itself  is one of the rewards we enjoy as areas of revegetation mature.
