    Default Dendrobium? Angraecum?

    I'm fascinated by this tiny orchid which has such unusual growing patterns... Firstly "leaves" themselves are rather unusual and then the tiny white flowers only seem to appear at the very top of the stem and then now it's producing little roots and plantlets on both sides along the stem...

    Can anyone help with an ID? I thought it was an angraecum because of the white flowers (although the leaf shape is not exactly the same) but some one has suggested it might be a dendrobium aporum of some sort...

    I don't have a good pic of the flowers - here's one from before...

    Yes certainly a dendrobium section aporum. Looks like Dendrobium anceps. I might be wrong
