    Default Dendrobium fleckeri

    This is my favourite Dendrobium ever ever and that is because of it's lip.

    Dendrobium fleckeri 'Dwarf Bronze'


    This is a bit of a miniature as the name suggests... it is growing in a 50mm tube pot.

    An Australian orchid that is found growing on trees or rocks in ranforest in the north-east of the continent at approximately 800-1500m elevation.

    An easy cool growing orchid that requires moderate amounts of light (similar to green leaved, single flowering Paph, eg. charlesworthii, light). Keep a little dryer in winter when temps are cooler to initiate the flowers in spring/summer.

    I have this sneaking suspicion that you like hairy lips.
