    Hi Rudy,

    Your plant is Dendrochilum stenophyllum, endemic to the Philippines. The plicate (pleated) foliage is a distinguishing feature of D. stenophyllum.

    The plant of D. luzonense has stiff, semi-circular leaves to 50 cm long and the flowers are pale brown in colour.

    All the best,

    Jim Cootes

    Hello Jim,

    I have another one which looks very similar even though not entirely the same of which you told me last year it was a Dendrochilum stenophyllum as well.
    Anyway, the tag reads 'Dendrochilum luzonica' iso 'Dendrochilum luzonense' but since I couldn't find anything on 'luzonica' I though there was possibly a spelling error on the tag.
    I also was thinking already that 'luzonica' was possibly a regional variation on the 'stenophyllum', but if there is no such thing, then I simply have two (pretty) plants of the same species.
    Thks for the info.
    All the best,
    Rudy
