Common Name The Pseudo-Glomeratum Dendrobium

Flower Size 1/2 to 1 1/2" [1.25 to 3.75 cm]

Found in Papua and New Guinea on trees in riverine forest around sealevel to 1830 meters as a large sized, hot to cool growing epiphyte with semi-erect, cane-like stems carrying many, slender, rather thin, deciduous leaves that blooms in the spring and fall on a short inflorescence with many [15], sweetly fragrant flowers clustered close together on the nodes near the apex of the leafless or leafy cane.

Best mounted on tree fern if watered daily in the summer, otherwise any fast draining media is alright for potting. This species requires no special winter rest.
