Dendrobium lichenastrum grows in north-eastern Australia at all elevations. It is fragrant and blooms in the fall. It is very small and forms a mat. The 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.
