    Exclamation Dendrobium ID help please! AGAIN!

    Hello everyone!
    I recently acquired this guy at my local OS meeting. Sold to me by one of the 'higher ups', I did not question the plant tag. I've since posted the plant online and have been told that it's an incorrect ID. I would appreciate any help in getting a positive id on this!

    Thank you ksrir! Now, I know others have the plant with this same tag but 2 people/experts on FB say that there is no assamica variety. Do you know if this is true or not?

    In my opinion, It is a variety that is distinct from the regular jenkinsii but may be kew does not recognize it as a variety.
