Dendrobium wardianum, pretty common around Yunnan and north Viet Nam.

definitely...been on my wish list for some time too :drool:
It is quite difficult to establish that one, and if getting wild plants ( most of the wardianum in the trade), the canes should be kept pendent, otherwise they start to rot and die. That's a species that can have 2m+ canes for some of them ( though I have several selected ones, that inviariably were 30-50 cm tall plants). It must not be ordered unless the new growth is showing some root starts ( right now), otherwise it is a total failure as well.

One more problem, if a pseudobulb is broken anywhere, even the tip, most of the time it tends to die back to the rhizome and induce the complete plant demise ( for fresh plants).
