Dendrobium anosmum Lindley 1845
This species comes from my homeland, Java Island (Indonesia). It is very common species here, and is usually cultivated on tree trunks. It blooms in the hot season when its cane is leafless, and during rainy season it produces a lot of keikis and new bulb. It also has a soft-purple color and nice fragrant. When you have one bulb, in a year it could spread to almost ten new plants. I had one long old bulb (about 1 meter) that produced almost twelve new keikis during rainy session. I could tell you that it is the easiest species to cultivate.
