Dendrobium parishii hybrid

Dendrobium parishii hybrid '#1'Dendrobium parishii hybrid '#1'Dendrobium parishii grows in Southeast Asia. It is cool to warm growing and fragrant. Blooms on old canes in the spring after a dry winter rest period. I mention this because this plant probably has a lot of Dendrobium parishii in it. It might be a species plant, I don't know. The tag was written in ballpoint and was completely faded when I first saw it.

It is in bloom again. The challenge with it as a collection plant is the tendency to sprawl. This year the plant was very near the north wall of the greenhouse so was guided up. I will re-pot and tie up the canes before putting it back.
