Dendrobium chrysocrepis - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe genus Dendrobium (Den) contains 1200 species from all parts of Asia and the Pacific. Some like a dry winter rest, all like to dry out between watering. Flowers are long lasting.

Dendrobium chrysocrepis grows Myanmar and Thailand at about 4500 feet. It is cool to warm growing and blooms in the spring and summer. The flowers don't last long and it needs lower light levels.
