    Default Dendrochilum from Cameron Highlands

    Can't get this to bloom at the same time as seen in photos in internet. But again, this is not D. wenzelii or D. uncatum either. So, I am content with this .

    Very pretty. How did you get it to bloom in the lowlands?

    I love the look of Dendrochilum -- very geometric. Is this one fragrant as well?

    No special treatment, just put it under 50% shade but the spike is not many and infrequent and I guess it prefers to be mounted rather than potted.Thanks for looking Cattan.

    Hi Mazlan,

    Your plant could be Dendrochilum gracile.
