    This little mini is amazingly fragrant. I can smell it 5 feet away. And there are only two tiny flowers! Can’t wait until it become a specimen size. Grown intermediate, can be grown warm.

    It’s a beautiful little species. Well done.

    I noticed that some of the leaves have yellow, tiny spots.
    I have it with one of my Masd. floribunda a got last year.
    Is this a virus infection?

    Thank you.
    No, those are not viral spots. the grower who I got it from has a lot of algae growing on leaves, that's what it is.

    Yours looks like a viral infection to me, though

    Is that a violaceum in the background?

    It looks more like a D. parvulum :D

    I think you are right, pfffffff.
    And while most viruses are not treatable, so I have to get rid of it (and there are spikes coming) :(

    This is a compot of Dendrobium parvulum.

    I've been in a Masdevallia kick lately. This is stunning!
