I bought these at a local market with some orchids. I didn't think they were orchids, then they bloomed! Very tiny as width of bloom 5mm and front to back 4mm. Entire plant 6-7 cm high. Any thoughts?

The little bit I can see of the leaves makes me think of some a mini-dendrobium of some sort, but I can't think of which one...

Looks like a Den in section Aporum, not sure of anything more specific than that... Very nice!

Confirmed to be a Dendrobium in section Aporum, probably Dendrobium indivisum.

This species has awesome succulent, saw blade type leaves.

Yes Thanks very much. Until it bloomed, I saw the succulent leaves and doubted it was an orchid. Maybe I'll get some more...

I think you should too. They're not commonly sold.
