    Default Dendrobium catenatum

    My plant shown here is growing in a 3 inch ( 7cm) pot ; has four flowering growths , (and 5 new leads) with canes perhaps 4 or 5 inches high. Looks like a mature adult plant.
    I also have Den stricklandianum in flower with ( to my eyes ) identical flowers, but borne in much longer racemes with far more flowers per spray ; and borne on canes up to maybe 18 inches long . IOSPE says that stricklandianum is a synonym, and that catenatum is very similar and perhaps synonymous with D officinale and D candidum . But all these niceties are a bit beyond the ordinary orchid enthusiast, so I'll leave my labels on.
    The pic does not do the flowers justice I think, as they are a cleaner green than shown here - but Photoshop can't do it for me.
