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.
