    Does anyone know anything about this species. It is pictured in Andea Millar's book on the orchids of New Ginea. You can also find a most exquisitely grown plant by Cynthia Hill by doing a Google image search.
    My plant is a Kiki of hers and apparently this is one of only two clones in this country. the two clones came in with a shipment of plants from Indonesia and were labeled D. wentianum
    I've had this plant for about two years and this is the first time it's bloomed.
    I can't find any info on the web. P1000593.JPG P1000595.JPG P1000596.JPG

    As far as I know, the first ones that came in were in 2010 and were labeled obtusisepalum. A few more came in this year, so there are a number of clones around, just not many. Cindy Hill is by far the best grower of this.
