Common Name The Small-Funneled Lip Dendrobium - in Thailand - Ueang ta hoen

Flower Size 4" [10 cm]

Found in the Chinese Himalayas, Assam, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam in dense forests as a medium to large sized, hot to cool growing epiphytic species found in deciduous trees at altitudes of 200 to 2300 meters with erect, cylindrical, to 10 leafed stem with sheaths covered with black hairs and narrowly ovate or linear-lanceolate, all along the new stem, dark green, obscurely bilobed apically leaves that can bloom at almost anytime of the year but mostly in the spring and summer with an axillary, short, 2 flowered raceme that arises from the nodes near the apex of the older leafless canes.

They need a dry winter rest from water and fertilizer and need temperatures a bit cooler than Cattleyas.
