    Default Dendrobium anceps

    This is the wierdest Dend in my collection. It hails from the Himalaya region of Nepal and eastward to Burma. It has distichous leaves. I don't grow it as cool as it gets in nature but I keep it close to the greenhouse wall in the winter where it is cooler and brighter. It looks a bit ratty this year because I repotted last year and it sulked for a bit.

    It's weird the way the flowers spike individually. What's a distichous leaf?

    It is a botanical term for leaves arranged in two vertical rows on opposite sides of the stem. On this plant they envelope the stem check out the leaf in the background or foreground left.

    Ron,
    I just got a division of Dend anceps, but have no clue about its required culture. How do you grow it? Does it need winter rest?

    Yes. It is a distichous leaved orchid found in India and SE Asia. It is grown mainly as a foliar plant in a basket than for its flowers.
