Dendrobium delacourii Guillaumin 1924


Dendrobium delacourii Guill. 1924 is an epiphytic growing miniature orchid species, native to Myanmar (formerly Burma), Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.

The tropical miniature orchid has been named by the French botanist André Louis Joseph Edmond Armand Guillaumin (1885-1974) in the year 1924 in honour to the American ornithologist Jean Théodore Delacour (1890-1985). In Thailand the orchid beauty is called Ueang Dok Ma Kham, which means Tamarind flower orchid. The small, but impressive flowers get a size of about 2 cm in diameter. Flowering period: April - June. Dendrobium delacourii belongs to the Dendrobium Section Stachyobium and is protected by CITES Appendix II (trade controlled to avoid use incompatible with species survival). The tropical orchid requires a warm – hot, humid climate and a location in partial shade or medium bright light. The potting medium should dry out between waterings,
but should still remain slightly moist.
