Dendrobium vexillarius is a high altitude miniature species from Papua New Guinea. It is variable both in plant size and in flower color, producing flowers in a rainbow of colors on plants that are even smaller than this or four to five times as large. My plant is 8cm tall. The unusually colored flowers are 3 cm and last for many months. They are produced at the end of the older pseudobulbs, often after the leaves have fallen off, and are usually two or three to each growth.
