Dendrobium crumenatum


This a very unusual Dendrobium that I picked up from a show in Honolulu a few years ago. It can bloom anytime of the year, but seems to be triggered by a specific combination of night vs. day temperatures. Club-shaped pseudobulbs taper suddenly into a long thin "stem" from which the short-lived blooms appear along the nodes. Another unusual characteristic -- blooms can appear from previously flowered nodes!
