    Looks like D. henryii. The cane looks nothing like densiflorum and chysotonxum has spindle shaped cane. If we can see the whole plant, it will be much easier to identify.

    it looks spindly, infact, it looks like one of those dends that look really crappy and dead when they aren't in bloom.

    Great looking dendrobium orchid no matter the name, though it does seem to be Dendrobium henryi but the lip seems a bit more ruffly than normal.
