 Dendrobium anosmum, Dendrobium superbum
Family: Orchidaceae
Fragrant Dendrobium
Origin: Southeast Asia
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeEpiphytePink flowersWhite/off-white flowersFragrant

This species has lavender flowers that have two burgundy spots on either side of the lip towards the inner base. An albino form with pure white flowers are available. The long slender pseudobulbs are said to grow to 3 meters (nearly 10 feet) in length. However, in cultivation, especially when it is mounted, the pseudobulbs often do not even reach three feet. The most common type of Dendrobium anosmum is also the most floriferous, it is capable of producing more than sixty flowers on a single cane

Its botanical name anosmum actually means without scent, but Dendrobium anosmum is one of the orchids species with a powerful fragrance.

These plants love high light and benefit from some hours of full sun, some can even stand full midday sun without complaint, however exposing the base of the canes to full sun is deathly for these plants.
