Dendrobium auriculatum Ames & Quisumb. 1932, a bushy untidy small plant that produces solitary flowers from summer to winter

Although in the wild, in Philippines it is reported to grow from 900 to 1000 meters of altitude, this particular plant is doing well at sea level near the north coast of the Island of Puerto Rico, in the Caribbean.  The area where it is grown is characterized by constant wild, humidity and high temperatures that for months fluctuate between 85F and 95F, only going lower in the dry season which correspond to the temperate winter and early spring.
