    Default Dendrobium papilio

    Intermediate or cooler grower. It is not commonly cultivated. This species seems variable in plant size and flower size. This one(first time blooming seedling) is on the larger side, 16"+ long pendant thin canes. 3"+ wide snow white flower. IOSPE says the flower is fragrant but no fragrance on mine yet...maybe I smelled it at the wrong time.

    The color photo didn't turn out right(flower should be snow white)...the last one is a black and white photo which I like so much that I've used it as my avatar.

    Thanks.

    update-the flower is fragrant but you really have to put your nose close to the flower.
