    Default Dendrobium rigidum

    This little guy surprised me. It was in spike when I got it but the bubs blasted pretty soon after it came home with me. A couple weeks later it started growing 2 new spikes! Woohoo! This past weekend the first 3 blooms opened up. They're pretty fragrant too, especially considering how small they are (about 0.5 cm each)!

    What a weird, but cute, little Dend! Anyone know what branch of the genus it falls under?

    Anyone know what all the different branches of the genus are?

    It is an Australian dend but taxonomists have recently moved these dends to a new genus called Dockrillia!
