Dendrobium Uniflorum

IMG_0067I purchased this plant on my visit to SLO Orchids on September 13th.  It had a tag with a number, 1793, and we evidently forgot to generate the correct tag for the plant.  After emailing Rudy at SLO Orchids, the name turned out to be Dendrobium Unifloruum.  It has a leaf structure unlike most of my Dendrobiums, as they are short and rigid and almost succulent-like. Once I looked closely at the flowers, I had to have this one.  I will put it with the Dendrobiums on the east-facing wall.

Rudy, at SLO Orchids, was also intrigued by this plant.  He had about a dozen of them, and this was clearly the best one.
