Orchid of the Day: Diplocaulobium

Diplocaulobium flowers

This Diplocaulobium is a great little Dendrobium relative that flowered today, and went a long way to pick me up from my winter doldrums. Its spider-like flowers last less than a day, opening in the morning and closing the same evening. But it more than makes up for its short-lived flowers by blooming frequently. I’ve had this plant about 3 years, and it reliably blooms at least once a month. The flowers have a strong sweet melon scent during the day.
