Dendrobium lamellatum [Bl.] Lindley 1830
The picture is not good. This is the third time this orchid blooms in my yard. At first, the cane will look like a mini plant of Den. platygastrium, because they are so similar except for their size. But when the flowers come, the similarity will disappear. This dendrobium has small flower (1 cm in diameter, with round-shape flower), yellow sepals and petals, and with brown labellum. The flower will come from nodul on leafless cane.
