    hey lanhua, very nice dendrobium. I had one myself but the new growths were dinner for some bugs and it didnt survive. Is this the "pygmy" variant of this species? You said it was a small species. I know there are two different sized plants. the plant i has was Pygym being the smaller version. Very nice flower either way.

    Really pretty bloom. I may have to add this to my little budding collection! Thanks for posting photos. As a newbie, it's pretty much the way I navigate.
