    Default Dendrobium formosum

    Would like to share the dwarf Dendrobium formosum with the cane hardly more than 8 inches. I am intrigued as the flowers so huge nearly about 5 inches.

    Gorgeous. Is the plant habit small in general, or is it a young plant?

    There no resting period for this species every time new pseudobulb matured will end up with few clusters of flowers at least 2 to 4 times a year.
