Dendrobium limpidum 'Ashley' CBR/AOS

Dendrobium limpidum is from New Guinea and belongs to the Pedilonum section of the genus Dendrobium, a group of mostly semi-pendant cane-type plants.  This species is one of the smallest in the section with thickened canes 10-12cm long.  The 2cm flowers, which do not open very widely, are produced in clusters, and though the individual flowers are quite small, the plant puts on a good show since both the color and number of the flowers are eye-catching and foliage very beautiful also.  My plant was given a Certificate of Botanical Recognition by the American Orchid Society (CBR/AOS).
