Dendrobium lichenastrum

Dendrobium lichenastrum - Flower photo by Richard LindbergDendrobium lichenastrum - Plant photo by Richard LindbergDendrobium lichenastrum is one of my favorite plants. It is small, grows well in my greenhouse and flowers all summer. Right now it has six flowers. I took the opportunity to try to take a new flower picture. These are tiny, almost white flowers and are very hard to photograph. None of the new pictures was good enough. The one on this post is a re-processing of the older picture.

Dendrobium lichenastrum grows in north-eastern Australia at all elevations. It is fragrant and blooms in the fall. It is very small and forms a mat.
