    Default Dendrobium distichum

    Quite attractive foliage, if only they grow in a more orderly manner.

    Flowers are tiny, from tip to tip 0.4 cm.

    I agree, that is awesome foliage. Would be worth having it as a green plant, even if it never bloomed!

    I love these plants, you are so right. There is a woman who lives near me who GENTLY rests the foliage against flexible wire stakes so her plants are where she wants them, which does display the plant well.

    I like the stripes on the petals and sepals. Its a shame they are so tiny.

    I like the look of this one's foliage, too.
    It's a close runner up to my wish list favorite,
    the very similar named/looking, Ang. Distichum.
    I like the idea of flexible stakes to "train" the way
    an unruly plant grows, that's a good idea, Jenn.

    Thanks, she just used some of my armature wrap wire (1/16 aluminum), which you can get at most art supply stores or online.
