    Question Miniature Tropical White Orchid, Southern Thailand

    This wild orchid blooms quite often here in Southern Thailand (about every 4 months). Blooms measure about 1 inch in diameter and there is always a profusion of them all at once, but alas, they only last 2 days. The blooms are also quite fragrant. Does anyone know it's name? Thanks.

    It has been identified as Dendrobium Crumenatum (or Pigeon Orchid)!

    Wow, those are beautiful growing like that! It's sad they are only open a couple days, but what a beautiful display! Do they bloom more than once a year??

    Yes Michael, they are Den crumenatum and very common throughout S E Asia . In Malaysia they love to grow on the raintree ( Samana saman) and as Ron says they burst into blooms 9 days after a drop in temperature.
