This Dendrobium crumenatum looks like a white dove perching on a branch. No wonder its known as the Pigeon Orchid, its silhouette really looks like a bird.
Here’s another angle of the Pigeon Orchid (Dendrobium crumenatum). This white flower with purple markings and a yellow tinted throat is fragrant too. However, its fragrance lasts only for 2 days!
I’m just grateful that this newly planted Dendrobium produces a single white flower. The abrupt drop of temperature and rain for the past days probably triggered it to bloom.
