    Elena,
    how is your plant doing? I ask as I have the same one.It was given to me in june 2007 (planted in a bark medium) covered in flowers. Since then made alot of Keikis which I have replanted and are growing but have just leaves on. & the 'mother' is slowly dying but still trying to produce keikis...
    Thanks

    Hi Nenella! You probably need to increase the light your dend gets, and perhaps start using a fertilizer that is lower in nitrogen. Keikis are generally a way for the dend to say, I'm not getting enough light!!! The lower nitrogen fertilzier will sometimes help to encourage blooming as opposed to vegetative growth. Hope that helps!!

    Thanks Becky, it's actually in a south facing window with my cattleyas & I can't give more light unless I persuade Hubby to let me buy some... I only have 2 fertilisers one higher N & one higher K- so can start giving it the 'bloom' one. what do you think they are 'O.Focus' ferts..
