    This one was known as Dendrobium dichaeoides short form, but I've also seen it listed as a separate species called Dendrobium limpidum.
    It is mounted on cork and is pendulous. The flowers last a couple of months and bloom in the fall. It is growing in my intermediate greenhouse.

    Is yours from Andy's? Mine came from Andy's few years ago, and I believe he called it a variety of Den. dichaeoides at one time, then changed it to Den. limpidum.
    Mine is a clumping plant and the cane starts very thin then gets very fat at the end. The cane is about 6" long.

    I have both the typical form that has long skinny bulbs and this fat bulb one. Both were from Hanging Gardens in San Fran. I have seen the fat bulb one at Andy's and it is similar to mine.
