Dendrobium parishii Rchb.f 1863, close up of the flowers

This is one of my smallest Dendrobium species.  The cane grows just a few inches in spite of all my efforts to try to see if it will produce larger canes.  I grow it exactly like my Dendrobium anosmum, it also receives the same light conditions.  It blooms every year with a few flowers on the tip of the canes.  I suspect that my local conditions are a bit too warm for this species and this translates into less vigorous growing.
