Dockrillia (Dendrobium) Julia Skillcorn is a primary hybrid of Dockrillia (Dendrobium) striolatum and Dockrillia (Dendrobium) mortii. The leaves drape nicely from the mount, with the appearance of long locks of (somewhat shaggy) hair. This hardy orchid blooms in March-April, depending upon the coldness of the winter.
We grow Dockrillia (Dendrobium) Julia Skillcorn in the summer, and relocate to the cool room for the winter (December-March), though we have grown outdoors year-round. I find Dockrillia (Dendrobium) striolata to be amongst the most cold and low-humidity tolerant of the Dockrillia species and this is reflected in all of the primary hybrids that we have as well.
