    Yes, a lots of dendrobium from South East Asia, they shed their leaves and preparing for bloom. In the wild its very difficult to find dendrobium especially deciduous type everything look like dead stick, and this guy camouflage very well like chameleon......he.he.he..

    Rebecca they need more sun light and dry spell immediately after they shed their leaves and I applied more fertilizer for flowering with N:P:K: ratio is 67 for 2 to 3 weeks. Usually through my observation, always give a good results. There no secret here but little bit experience. I hope this will work for you . Good luck.
