    Smile Dendrobium leonis

    Native to Malaysia, this guy like durian tree in the wild , the beauty about this species the leaf is zig zag pattern.Although the flower very small about 1 cm I like it because of vanilla smells and always bring it to office.

    I would love to see a picture of the entire plant! How do you grow this one?? I love dendrobiums for their ability to thrive where other plants die. Thanks for sharing...

    Thanks for sharing this one Zain. I like Meg's decription. That first bloom photo looks like a mask or something. Very cool little bloom.

    Cheers,

    Just the foliage alone makes this plant very attractive! ( I like the little flowers too, don't get me wrong.)
