    Another picture of my dendrobium. I hope it is clear enough. This dendrobium has soft fragrance. The flowers look like those of Dendrobium crumenatum

    Nisa. Does your Dendrobium come from Indonesia?

    I cannot see enough of the plant in any of your photos.

    If it has a swollen basal portion to the stem, then you may have Den. angulatum. However, Den. angulatum has only been reported from northeast India, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and Peninsular Malaysia. There have been no reports of Den. angulatum from Indonesia.

    Yes, it comes from East Java, Indonesia Gary. I'll show you the plant tomorrow

    Gary, here is the plant. I've just checked IOSPE on Den. angulatum, and think the flower looks similar to mine. But not the leaves. Mine are not so pointed, and they always closed to the stem

    Nisa. Seeing your plant photos and knowing that your plant comes from Java, it seems to fit Dendrobium truncatum.

    I hope that helps
