    san, is this species variable in size(for wild plant)? All I have seen here are much bigger/longer plants.

    BTW, it is a lovely Dendrobium.

    Hi Tom,
    Yes this plant is variable in size for wild plant. Usually those from high altitude have longer and thicker stems than those from low altitude. And short one from wild will be as long as those longer one if being well grown. For me I'd rather choose short one for those difficult plants. Usually short one will be easier to plant.
    This dendrobium is not a difficult one,I choose this just because it's cute!
