    Wink Noids Very Cheap !!

    This is the last purchase for awhile.I could not pass this deal up.I went to a supplier to one of the lg.box stores.All three of these Noids were in one pot,ready for retail.I really wanted this group because the all white Den. had a wonderful scent.Did you notice that I said,HAD !! Well this group was the last of three that I repotted after repotting three others.As you can see,the white one is very contorted.Well,I broke off the spike.You know,I let out one bad word and moved on.I still have a very health plant.I will be posting all of my growing areas.You will see the other tall noids I picked up.Three lg.noids for $25.00 can't beat that !! Still have fun. Rich

    Thats good deal. I love white dens but I cannot find true whites. Most of what I find are light shades of green or yellow.

    Regarding the roots, from my experience it does not matter how good the roots are. When I purchase dendrobiums from a big box store and repot them, it will always discard all its existing roots and insist on growing brand new ones into the new pot or basket.
    Sometimes I talk to these dens and ask them "why did I even bother spending a couple of hours carefully untangling your roots when you were going to drop them anyway?" They just look at me and sway in the breeze like shrugging their shoulders.

    John,that is strange.Even before I found this supplier to the box stores,I have never lost one Den. ever.I have purchased many Den.s from box stores, Discount retailers and even Grocery stores.All my Den.s grow like weeds,very easy to grow.Maybe I'm just lucky! I always repot,99% of my plants.I always find most of these plants are stuck into moss.Currently ,there is one plant out of all my collection that has not been repotted

    Hi Rich,

    Good finds! I hope you kept the whit dend spike in a vase. It should bloom out the rest of those buds for you.

    Cheers,
