Kraenz. The results reveled that Dendrobium heterocarpum Wall. ex Lindl. have showed a maximum pedicel length (2.50 cm), dorsal sepal length & width (3.22, 1.07 cm ), lateral sepal length & width ( 3.37, 0.97 cm), petal length &petal width (3.10, 1.23 cm), labellum length & labellum width (2.90, 2.00 cm).
