Dendrobium limpidum

Dendrobium limpidum
In Explore December 26, 2011, #303.

This orchid is from Papua New Guinea and belongs to the group of Dendrobiums named Pedilonum. It is a small plant with stiff pendant canes that produces its flowers during the winter months. This photo was taken last February, but the plant should soon be in bloom once again. It can produce a lot of flowers since it continues to bloom from the old canes every year. It's foliage is also quite beautiful, as can be seen from the photo, something that is not always the case with orchids. Its species status is somewhat uncertain since many consider it a synonym of Dendrobium dichaeoides. It comes from high altitudes and requires cool temperatures and moist conditions to do well.
