    Default Dockrillia rigida

    formerly Dendrobium rigidum. It is low land Australian and New Guinea species that is tolerant of high light. It has a short inflorescense, about 5 cm long with 2-7 flowers that are 1.5 cm in diameter. I have it growing on bark but have grown it in a small pot of fast draining media.

    Hmmm, like the crystalline (sp?) quality of the flowers. Do they last long?
