From – Found in Assam, eastern Himalayas, Nepal, western Himalayas, Andaman Islands, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Yunnan China and Vietnam as a large sized, warm growing, pendant epiphyte found on deciduous trees at elevations of 500 to 1000 meters where they need direct sunlight for at least 3 hours a day. This plant has clustered, ascending, prostrate or pendulous, terete, sulcate stems covered in white sheaths and blooms in the winter through summer on a short inflorescence with minute bracts and 1 to 2, fragrant flowers that arise from nodes along the leafless cane and needs lots of water and fertilizer after the new growth begins, lasting through late September when it is time to stop water and fertilizer until the new growths begin again.

This is a rarely found, but easy to grow, Dendrobium that grows much like a Dendrobium anosmum (sometimes called superbum), but the canes are thinner and carry a much different flower (there are several different Dendrobiums in this group).

These plants are keikis that will need a year to grow and then should be blooming size. This is one of those Dendrobiums where you need to cut back the water/fertilizer in what would be the dry season where they come from. If you don’t get it just right, they will produce more keikis and less flowers. I grow them mounted.
