A miniature form ? of this species from the Philippines and Taiwan – there is some uncertainty about the correct ID, but we have bought it as Dendrochilum uncatum and have given this clone the name Picanini – meaning small boy in Zulu, because of its miniature growth and flowering habit. A profuse bloomer and absolute joy to own.
Grows in dappled to bright light in warm to intermediate conditions
