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?
Cool - thanks, Ron!
Where'd you ever find this guy Ron?
I purchased it as a seedling a few years ago...It may have been the NY show, I no longer recall
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.
