Pigeon Orchid

Dendrobium crumenatum


It produces white, 5cm wide, fragrant flowers with a yellow tinted throat. Flowers are short lived. The bloom cycle is triggered by sudden drops in temperature (at least 5.5 °C or 10 °F), usually as a result of rain, although the same effect can be artificially created. The plant produces a fragrant smell, but only for two days.


Plants are found attached to the bark of the other tree in semi deciduous lowland forest. Usually can be found growing on the roadside trees bark.
