Dendrochilum cornutum from Java could almost be put in a miniature class. It has very tiny flowers on spreading pendulous spikes that are quite attractive as a spike but the plant would be much more appealing if it can be encouraged to flower really heavily with numerous spikes. I haven't been able to do this and from my point of view there are more worthwhile species to collect before chasing this one down. Nevertheless, don't pass one up if you get a chance because they take up very little room in their preferred warm and moist glasshouse.

Negatives: It lacks the 'wow' factor of some of the other Dendrochilums.
