Dendrobium cuthbertsonii

I have so many different plant of this species, that I don't remember whether or not I posted this one recently, and haven't bothered to check.  This, again, is Dendrobium cuthbertsonii, one of the most desirable of all miniature orchids.  It is from New Guinea and from the Oxyglossum section of the genus Dendrobium.  The plants vary slightly in size but at most are only a few centimeters tall with flowers that dwarf the plant.  This particular plant has very large flowers and has bicolor (two-toned) flowers.
