    Default Dendrobium no id, philippines

    hi guys,
    my friend and i share this plant, but since mine is not doing well, im posting his pix to hopefully id this mysterious looking dendrobium?

    to describe it, the canes are very thin and the whole plant has more of a grass like appearance.
    it forms those nods in between the quite thin leaves and maybe 2 months later a short spike comes out with 2 buds on it, and thats something else, isnt it?
    as for the green/yellow bloom, it has dendro written all over it, unlike the whole plant.

    here we go and thanks for helping to id it,

    how funny, after posting i checked the new posts and found a striking similarity on nelson's plants, dendrobium auriculatum, but bloom doesnt match plus its always 2 on 1 spike.

    Cool green bloom. Are you sure it is a dendrobium?

    Cheers,

    It is probably a Grastidium ornithoflorum (first choice) or Grastidium verruculossum.

    Grastidium used to be a section of the large genus Dendrobium.
