Current pic taken in KFBG, Hong Kong. Plant is assumed to be collected very long back from China (Yunnan).
Interesting leaf pattern … seems to be quite unique..
Yes it is one of the very few branched Dendrobiums. It has one branching brother in India too called Dendrobium herbaceum and even looks very similar to that but flowers are 100 times bigger and obviously different. I must have shared Dendrobium herbaceum long back.
