    Default Dendrobium subuliferum

    Miniature species from New Guinea. Section Oxyglossum.

    In Irian Jaya, plants grow on the Vogelkop Peninsula, in the Gautier and Star Mountains and on Mt. Goliath. In Papua they grow in West Sepik, Southern Highlands and Morobe provinces. It grows at elevations of 300-2000m.

    The flowers are about 15mm wide and the small plant 3-5cm tall. This species requires high humidity and intermediate to cool conditions.

    Lovely flowers, Thomas! I had never seen this species before. How unfortunate for me that it would require cooler temps than I can provide.

    I'm not sure I totally agree with your quote. I think you have more than just a point and shoot talent when it comes to taking pictures of your plants. Although, this is a gorgeous orchid.

    Great species and photos! Is it in moss?

    Nice clone too, Thomas.
