Dendrobium seranicum 'Brendan'

Dendrobium seranicum is a high-altitude species from New Guinea that loves cool temperatures, high light and lots of water and humidity.  I grow it mounted on a piece of cork bark.  The plant is 8 cm tall and the very long-lasting flowers are 3 cm.  It belongs to the section Oxyglossum which includes some of my favorite orchids.  They have brightly colored long-lasting flowers, and with a few exceptions are miniatures.
