Den. hercoglossum

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Den. hercoglossum is a medium-sized plant with clustered,
slender stems that are 20-35 (-57) cm long and 7 mm in diameter.
The spindle-shaped stems are slender at the base and a little swollen toward the apex.
They generally become pendulous as they lengthen.
Howard Wood (2006) says that the stem sometimes grows for 2 years, producing 2 swellings,
with the leaves falling and blooming on the recently grown portion.
Each pseudobulb bears 4-6 narrowly linear, two-ranked leaves that are 5-10 cm long and 4-11 mm wide.
