Mystery surrounding Dendrobium trengganuensis/terengganuensis . Is this the valid name?

Is this name the real mccoy? Did a search on the IPNI and RHS ‘s data base but is still not able to find it in both data base. The naming of this beautiful dendrobium has yet to be resolved? To be honest ,I would love to have such a beautiful dendrobium to name after me.

This plant was reputed to be difficult to grow in cultivation. This desirable and beautiful dendrobium was first discovered in the State of Trengganu, Pensinsular Malaysia.

But having the plants for sometimes, it seem to be like the most of the other dendrobium in the Calcarifera Section, , they are easy to grow and flower in Singapore climate.

Dendrobium trengganuensis produces 3 to 4 flowers , borne from the nodes of the leafless stems, The flowers are 2.6 cm wide sepals and lip are yelowish green, fringe at the edge. They are watered twice a day and are grown in partial shade condition.

  1. Jeffrey has confirmed that D. terengganuensis is not a validly published name. This species is being described by Peter in Malesian Orchid Journal 6, which will appear later this month. I would put the official name in the blog after the Journal is published.
