Wonderful. There is another endemic species in Uttarakhand called Dendrobium normale…. strange name is normale but I think it is abnormal for of fimbriatum 🙂 If some one can find then please share.
Thanks for sharing this.


The first one looks like Dendrobium fimbriatum uploaded by …, but I am not sure about the other three. Please help. Photographed from forest along Chopta Mandal Road in Uttarakhand

Kindly help in ID of this plant Photographed from Bhageshwar in Uttarakhand.

This is Dendrobium fimbriatum. Very typical and can be differentiated from Dendrobium moschatum in having much pointed leaf which is more rounded in D. moschatum.
