Dendrobium densiflorum

One of the so-called 'Indian' dendrobium, Dendrobium densiflorum bears a profusion of clusters that hang like so many oriental lanterns. I refuse to refer to it as some do, the 'Pineapple' orchid sounds too crass. Though this easy-grow epiphyte has energy and a pleasant fragrance, there is nothing fruity-sweet about the appearance, nor the prefume it exudes.
