I can't work out what the label says for this Dendrobium that I bought at Malvern last year - Google searches for various interpretations don't yield any hits. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

The only things I could suggest is to e-mail the person you got it from asking them the name.
But their is I also group on Facebook the is only about dendrobium Nobel type lots of hybridiers on there and experts they might be an,e or help you with the name of the plant.

Thank you Blondie...I have it though! Noticing that the 'b' in 'Dendrobium' on the label is similar to the third letter of the last word, that made that word 'Hebammen' - and that let me track it down. It's Dendrobium 'Meinen Hebammen' (http://orchidroots.org/natural/100967557/hybrid_detail/?), or 'My Midwives' - the story behind that is here : http://www.orchideengarten.de/2015/04/03/wie-neue-orchideenkreuzungen-benannt-werden-und-welche-pers%C3%B6nlichen-geschichten-manchmal-dahinter-stecken-k%C3%B6nnen-erfahren-besucher-in-london-auf-der-17-europ%C3%A4ischen-orchideenkonferenz/

I read Dendrobium nobile then a name that looks like Meinen Hebammen. If this is correct then there are two possibilities:-

1. It is a specific Den. nobile that has been given the name Meinen Hebammen hence the use of the speech marks in the name on the tag.

2. It could be Dendrobium Meinen Hebammen registered by Karge in 2013 (Den Nikkou x Den Oriental Smile). This is part den nobile.

Of the two I would guess 2. as the plant pictured does not look like a true den nobile but it does have den nobile in its background.

Thank you Terry - I'd overlooked the first possibility, but yes, I'm going with the second.
