    Default Does anyone know to which group this Orchid belongs?

    Hello everyone, I am posting a picture of an orchid plant that I got a few months ago, I had tied it to a piece of wood with coconut straw and some sphagnum and it is pretty healthy with the roots getting stronger, I want to put it in a hanging basket but I do not know what type of medium it would require because I do not know to which group it belongs, Name:  CIMG0781a.jpg

    I normally mount these soft stem dendrobiums on driftwood or any wood mount, or tree fern slab.

    I agree with Zainal. I think it's Dendrobium aphyllum.

    there are many pendant Dendrobiums. In most cases, these plants are grown in baskets or on mounts made of treefern fiber or cork with a thick pad of sphagnum moss attached to it.
