Description

Dendrobium anosmum is a sympodial and epiphytic plant which is flowering in March to April and November to December. This species was found distributed in Indochina, Thailand, Sumatra, Philippines and New Guinea. In Peninsular Malaysia, this species used to be recorded on limestone outcrops in the northern state, but now it can also be found widespread in lowlands including the peat swamp forest. The flowers of this species are sweetly scented, smelling similar to raspberries and become the preferred choice as an ornamental plant. The inflorescences of this species arise from its leafless stem and its flowers are 7 cm across. From this single natural species, other forms and varieties have been extensively cultivated and hybridised.

Habits

  Part Habit
 
Epiphyte   —   Growing on another organism but not parasitic. Not growing on the ground.
 
Sympodial   —   A specialized lateral growth pattern in which the apical meristem is terminated and growth is continued by one of more lateral meristems, which repeat the process.
