    Dendrobium petiolatum; miniature PNG Dendrobium that grows in a range of temperatures from warm to cool. Most PNG Dendrobiums are not as forgiving when it comes to temperature as most need cool nights usually down into the 40's. The plant itself is about 3 to 3 1/2 inches long from base of pseudobulb to tip of leaf. The cluster of blooms is about an inch long from throat to tip of petals with very bright pink flowers that are only about a centimeter in diameter.

    I am going to grow this in a wine cooler with my other Oxyglossum Dendrobiums.
