Dendrobium agathodaemonis

Dendrobium agathodaemonis
This plant is often considered to be a variety of Dendrobium cuthbertsonii, which it does resemble in some respects. It is different, however, in the fact that the growths are generally smaller and thinner than those of cuthbertsonii, and the flowers lack the dark coloring on the midlobe of the lip - they are nearly pure white in this case. My plant is 4 cm tall with flowers that are very close to that size and which dwarf the plant. The plant is a prolific bloomer with long-lasting flowers and is in bloom nearly year around. It is native to Papua New Guinea.
