    Default Dendrobium atroviolaceum

    Referred to as the "Black Blood-red Dendrobium", Dendrobium atroviolaceum is a lowland epiphyte native to Rossel Island, Papua New Guinea.

    Typically, this species can grow to about 30cm, and have a many-flowering inflorescence to about 10cm tall. This 'Pygmy' form grows to 9cm tall, which is less than the length of a typical inflorescence It has been mentioned that this 'Pygmy' form of Den. atroviolaceum should be regarded as a separate species, but it probably hasn't gotten past the "talk" stage. Here's the pic of my little plant (I really need to get a better camera)...
