Polystachya pubescens

A pretty little winter flowering orchid from South Africa.
It occurs in the Eastern Cape and there is a slight chance that it will be tender with hints of hardiness. It grows and behaves like some of the tougher Dendrobium so it is getting a chance in the greenhouse. It has been damaged repeatedly in winter but hangs on, though not always a thing of beauty.
