    Default Dendrobium sp., Philippine Orchids

    Just in bloom, surprises me this afternoon.
    One of few orchids that I have bought from my adventure trip.

    It has weird flowers which is deformed like Siamese twins.

    This orchid is similar to Dendrobium tiongii and Dendrobium bullenianum in color.
    The spur (hypochile) is not flat as Dendrobium tiongii and not round as Dendrobium bullenianum. Floral displayed as pendant.

    I hope Jim Cootes provide answers.

    Hi Derek,

    The flowers of your plant, and particularly the inflorescence appear to be deformed. Have the blooms opened any further since posting the above images?

    Hi Jim,

    Those flowers are deformed.
    I got another chance to spot the flower but it seems to be Dendrobium tiongii after all but this is pendulous character.

    I hope this will bloom again and investigate its growing habit.
