    Zuoxin, I think you are right. There is no picture of this species, but the description fits, to your plant. I've have also one plant. Dendrobium xichouense in Flora of China @ efloras.org

    Wouldn't think it was alive until seeing the blooms. Interesting orchid for sure!

    I could understand many people overlooking this plant at this stage or even throwing it out if it had no blooms because they thought it was dead. Some dens can be so sneaky this way. heh Lovely flower

    Thanks Mietek for the ID!
    Thanks everyone for your comments!
    This species has long and thin stem. Many Dendrobiums native to China lost their leaves in autumn and bloom after that. When they are blooming we can see flowers cover the whole plants without a leaf.
    BTW this plant has some new grow so it is till living
