Dendrobium densiflorum is a species of calistra type Dendrobium widespread throughout south east Asia, and ranges from India to Vietnam and Southwest to China.
A mature plant can grow from 30cm to 45cm high.
The arching to pendulous inflorescence forms near the nodes near the top of the cane and often have 50-100 flowers that are up to 5cm. They are usually longer then the plant but like most callistra type dens they are short lasting.
A large specimen plant is eye catching and a real crowd pleaser.
Ideal conditions are
- medium to high filtered light,
- cool to warm locations
- in a well drained mix that dries before it is watered again.
They can be grown on a mount.
