    Default Dend unicum

    This Dendrobium is native to Thailand, Burma, and Laos, The fragrance is much like freshly sharpened crayons with a bit of a tangerine undertone. I grow it on a bark mount with brighter light in the winter than in the summer. It is watered frequently while in growth. It is a fairly compact plant, canes about 6"

    Those are beautiful flowers.

    The fragrance is one of my favorites.
    I have one mounted in the greenhouse somewhere, but the plant is so tiny it almost becomes invisible during the winter and I only see it again when new canes grow.
    The canes on my Den. unicum almost die out completely after blooming, leaving only a small root stump on the mount - which makes me think that the plant is dead, until the next season.

    Really? Is it a rather short-lived orchid then? Looks like yours is blooming nicely.

    Sorry, that was a confusing statement. I meant that older canes will die after a couple of years.

    I need to get one of these and I found it at an internet seller that I have purchased from before. I'll be ordering shortly.
    I'm just a neophyte with orchids and would appreciate some information. What do you mean "the older canes die after a couple of years"? Do you just cut the off and discard, or do you re-plant them to clone the plant? Does the plant itself stay small?
