    Growing in a thimble pot ; the true size can be seen from the pic which includes an AA battery. ( and a 1 euro coin)
    I have only just acquired this little curiosity - mainly because if it says Dendrobium species - I buy it ( I am up to about a hundred different ones now - only another thousand or so to go - ha-ha ). Take a good look - I doubt if you will see it again ; the problem is that it doesn't like to be soggy, but it needs watering every day . Like a baby, really - and I do have another life ( sometimes...). But it is rather sweet, so I will try my best !

    That is really cool! I have a Dendrobium list that I made up by going through IOSPE. Didn't include any that are considered large or any that have flowers to small to appreciate with the naked eye. Still ended up with three pages. Have it with me at every society meeting and show. So far I've checked off 44. Love the damn things.
