Dendrobium-kingianum-var-alba-2020-03-01***Determined not to be Dendrobium kingianum; confirmed as Dendrobium Specio-kingianum (Mar 2020); the arrangement and habit of the inflorescence is wrong for D.  kingianum, as is the shape of the pseudobulbs and the leaves; it is likely to be the man made hybrid with D. speciosum, and not a collected, natural hybrid based on the Jardin's collection records.***
