Dendrobium cuthbertsonii color forms

Once known as Dendrobium sophronitis, this tiny species from New Guinea is one of the most desirable of all miniature orchids.  Its color, the size of the flowers in relation to the plant, and the longevity of the flowers all make it a real treasure.

The plants vary somewhat in size, but are never more than a few cm tall.  The flowers are larger than the plant and come in many different colors, even in a bi-colored form.  This post shows some of the different colors of this lovely orchid.
