A warm growing Dendrobium from lowland Papua New Guinea. These are very well-grown plants that fill up the pots with many stiff canes, and newly emerging growth.

It requires high humidity to grow well and is mostly grown mounted or in baskets. The fine roots must be allowed to dry out between waterings or they will rot, but the plants should never be allowed to dry too much.

As with most Dendrobiums, these plants require very bright diffused light. They are deciduous and lose all their leaves during the winter months.
