Dendrobium delacouri

A pretty little species, slightly fragrant, with an

unusual lip full of little 'fingers'. The photo of the individual flower shown below shows these fairly clearly.

Marvelous lip on this one. I believe according to Andy's there are 2 types of this: a standard and a compact version. Yours seems to be blooming on very short canes...mine hasn't bloomed yet but it's canes are quite long so I wonder if I have the standard form. Great growing!

Very odd but nice. They look like a row of pollinia!
