Orchidaceae: Dendrobium crepidatum Lindl. & Paxton:
Dendrobium crepidatum Lindl. & Paxton, Paxton’s Fl. Gard. 1: 63 (1850). Family: Orchidaceae
Distribution: India, China, Nepal, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam.
Habit: Epiphyte or Lithophyte

Note: This is my first ever made painting of the orchid. Painted in the evening today. Just thought of sharing, though it is not good at all. But I learnt and will try to improvise. Hopefully next time I would be able to make something better. Some spots on the image are because the painting got stuck on the scanner screen.
