Dendrobium subuliferum

This miniature species is from Papua New Guinea and belongs to the Oxyglossum group of Dendrobiums, a group of mostly high altitude species with very long-lasting flowers.  This is first-bloom seedling and has only one flower at present, but if happy can be very floriferous.  My plant, at present is 5 cm, but should grow a bit larger.  The flowers are 1 cm in size and have a sparkling texture which sets off the beautiful purple tip to the column.
