    Default dendrobium crumenatum 鴿石斛

    i bought this thing a while ago only because i still had a few dollars left from my flower market budget that day and this plant just looked so strange... it only had a chinese name that i had to write down and try to translate (it took 4 taiwanese friends to figure it out...not an easy name to read) then i was able to search for it... seems its a taiwan native, has a very interesting form with small, intriguing flowers...
    i read that rapid temperature drops induce flowering... so i let it spend the night in the AC then tossed it back out to the taiwanese summer inferno...seems to have done the trick!




    sorry some of these pics are a little wank, i just got home from work and snapped them off quickly, i'll try for better ones as more flowers open!

    Very nice Shane, i have some friends here who own this, and can flower it for months on end using that trick! Fooled me first time i saw it, i thought it was Dockrillia, but it turns out it is a close cousin of the Docs.

    hi, it doesnt look like crumenatum, but in the same family of Ceraia.
    your plant and flowers look too small, how long does the flower last?

    I'm afraid I have to agree with Ron. The plant, the flowers don't look like crumenatum.

    dang it! yall always puttin me down!!! yall are right, i just looked at the plant pics for crumenatum, different growth... i must admit, i searched the chinese name and crumenatum is what came up, it was in my taiwan field guide as well, flowers looked close-ish...though mine has a heavily fringed lip... i do have a list i found for alternate names for d.crumenatum, guess i can start there for an id...

    what yall think about Dendrobium polytrichum (Ames 1907)?
    this looks spot on....though the flowers seem to originate from close to the stem/modified leaves, whereas mine are produced at the end of a terminal spike that almost appears dead...
    again, close but no cigar, i suppose....sigh

    the growth would fit to polytrichum, only you could tell seeing your flowers in flesh by comparing it!
    well, great and even better i would say!
    Ceraia crumenatum is quite common, not to say ugly or so, and also grows fast and large.

    I am glad Shane that this little beauty is no longer going to be a 'crume' orchid. AL
