Orchid Species: Dendrobium kwashotense

Kew currently accepted name is Dendrobium crumenatum

Dendrobium kwashotense is an orchid species identified by Hayata in 1914. Culture information and photos for this orchid are commonly detailed under the currently accepted name of Dendrobium crumenatum.
Dendrobium (Den.)
ORIGIN: Found in Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Sri Lankha, Andaman Islands, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Lesser Sunda Islands, Moluccas, Sulawesi, Sumatra, New Guinea, Christmas Islands and the Philippines in semi-deciduous and deciduous dry lowland forests and savana-like woodlands at an altitude of sea-level to 500 meters and grows.

DESCRIPTION: Small to large sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte with spindle shaped, swollen basally for a few nodes, ridged, yellow with age stems that can branch, carrying, 4 to 19, thick, leathery, eventually deciduous leaves that will flower on the upper nodes of the leafless older canes with several to many fragrant flowers, albeit for only a few hours, after a temperature drop and rain.

FLOWER SIZE: 2 or less inches [5 cm or less] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
