Just acquired a new Dendrobium from Woon Leng. Bosses were not there so didn't get to know the ID.
It's got more than 20 pots of these there without any bud or spike. No spent spike seen too.
One of the workers said it was a blooming size "Dendrobium Frosty Dawn" type orchid and the flowers are gonna be white with orange lip.

The plant has grown into a bush but the tallest cane is not more than 3 inches.
Seriously? 3 inches and blooming size?
Honestly, the canes do look like Frosty Dawn but how could the size be that small? It is so tiny to bloom..

Anyone could help iD it? Also it would be perfect with the growing condition for this type of Den.

You should trust weng leng Id on the plant . If you think the Id is wrong , then the plant is as good as no id at all . Pseudobulb size is no indication of wrong id. You can email weng leng if you have doubt.

These are nigro hirsute type dendrobiums, or black hairy type. They usually need cooler weather to bloom.
Here's mine, which thrives on neglect. I mount it on a fern bark rather than grow them in pots. Now also keeping about 7 other nigro hirsute type dendrobiums from SGF.

Go google for nigro hirsute type dendrobiums for their care and upkeep.

Thanks for the info. The plant is now standing at 3 inches tall and was told already a blooming size, so I got confused. Let's see if I could bloom this one. Thanks again.
