    Default Dendrobium Upin King 'Serenade'

    Oh my, how I love this dend. I just had to show you guys!! I think I'll be getting some more Dends this weekend !!!!

    This is D. Upin King 'Serenade'. I got this plant in august, put it in SH in September, and proceeded to freeze it to death on my windowsill this past winter No, I'm just kidding, it didn't really freeze...but it got DARN cold. I'm sure you guys heard all about how the midwest was in a deep freeze for weeks on end...well, I gotta tell ya, it was painful at the time, but it sure looks like the dend liked it!!! It would get down to about 47F on my windowsill, believe it or not. It has 11 blooms.

    Here are some cultural tidbits:
    -grown in south window
    -media: hydroton
    -temps: fluctuate a lot, couldn't even tell you
    -watering: 1x per week in the winter, every 4th time I flush with plain water, fert all other times.
    -humidity: average 50% RH

    Thanks for looking!!
    ~Becky

    That is lovely! I'm not surprised it liked it at 47 degrees--it could probably handle a fair amount colder. Those dends are tough cookies and they like their winters brisk. It is lovely! I'm glad something good came of all your winter cold.

    That is so nice. I wish all of our dends were that size with blooms! LOL. I love the shape and colors of the blooms on this one. Thanks for the culture tips too.

    Cheers,

    I really like it has such vivid colors. You keep buying and you will be out of the apartment into a house with a big window and a back yard with southern exposure big enough for a greenhouse you know. You got the fever and your getting worse I can tell.

    They are out there and they are waiting on you.
