Dendrobium speciosum v. curvicaule 'Moonbeem' x 'Jaq's Moon Best'
This is a cross between two absolutely top quality speciosums. Both parents are D. speciosum variety curvicaule, which is the form found in the Mackay hinterland. This variety is particularly prized by orchid growers and judges for its shape, texture and the neatness of the flower arrangement on the flower spike. These particular two plants are both bred by Ross Harvey (who was in business as Cedarvale Orchids). 'Moonbeem' (which is a selected seedling of 'Bee Creek' x 'Daylight Moon') has long beautifully arranged racemes. Jaq's Moon Best (which is a selected seedling of 'Jacqueline' x 'Daylight Moon') won Champion species at the native orchid society Kabi 2016 show. It's got amazing big and chunky flowers with amazing texture and flower arrangement. Both parents have lovely cream flowers and I expect great things from this cross.
Seedlings are established in 80mm pots as shown in photos 2 and 3. Flower photos show both parents of this cross. Sorry, no sales to Tas, WA or the NT due to state plant quarantine laws.
