SPECIES Sn... sz...

The following is a list of the dendrobium species. The information is provisional, as much of the data has not yet been confirmed. The information is presented as a service to growers, but there may well be some errors in the data. Dendrobium is one of the largest of all orchid genera, and is not well understood. Much of the information - especially the sectional classification - is based on old taxonomic analysis, but it should still be of use.

Plants from the same section are likely to require the same or similar cultural conditions, and these listings will assist in ascertaining the appropriate culture requirements. It is intended to list the main cultural conditions appropriate to each section in the future.

 

The information includes

  1. Species

    The species or name included in the reference publication. Not all species are shown, there is not universal agreement on the species, and there is a need for a definitive study of this genus. Where a species has multiple listings, the reference source should be noted.

  2. Synonyms

    The synonym where given.  Where nothing is listed, the noted author believes the plant is a valid species.

  3. Section reference

    The Section reference - see SECTIONS PAGE

  4. Section

    The Dendrobium section to which the species belongs. There is not agreement in all cases of the appropriate section each plant belongs to, and multiple listings indicates the different conclusions of each author as noted in the last column.  For list of sections refer to SECTIONS PAGE

  5. Reference

    The reference source - SEE REFERENCE PAGE.
