FLORA & FAUNA Definitives

The Pigeon Orchid ( Dendrobium crumenatum ) is a member of the family Orchidaceae. This Orchid produces white, fragrant flowers with a yellow tinted throat. From the side, the orchid resembles a flying pigeon, and hence, it is also commonly in Singapore and Malaysia, growing naturally on trees in open areas. The flower buds remain dormant until stimulated by a drop in temperature usually bought about by a rainstorm, and flowering will occur 9 days later for just a day. Hence, it is not surprising that one can see all the pigeon orchids in Singapore bloom on the same day, several times a year due to our climate. It is widely cultivated ornamental and landscape plant.
