    Very cute! Second picture is a sugar candy! How big are the flowers? Are they fragrant?

    Very pretty, Mietek. I'm not very up on dendrobiums, but the leaves, etc on this one don't look like the usual to me - are they terete? And is this a cane-less dendrobium?

    Maura, Dendr. politrichum belong to section crumenata, subgroup 2 with terete leaves. Almost 32 Dendrobium belong to this subgroup. Of course they have a cane, but just very short. Some of them are only few mm long.
    Later I'll post a picture for you.
