Dendrobium moschatum

Dendrobium moschatum - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI did a blog entry about this plant in bloom a few days ago, calling it Dendrobium fimbriatum oculatum. Well, an avid but anonymous blog reader pointed out that the tag was wrong and it was really Dendrobium moschatum. I was happy to get this information because I really want my plants correctly named.

Dendrobium moschatum grows in Southeast Asia at low altitudes. It is cool to hot growing, needs bright light and is fragrant. It blooms spring into summer on leafless canes. Flowers last only a few days.
