    Default Den. crumenatum??

    Cheers,

    I was surprised that when I saw that my newly acquired noid developed buds,
    i was waiting for them to open for about a week or so. Then this morning
    I noticed that the blooms finally opened. I think it is Den. crumenatum, can
    anyone confirm. Its really fragrant, the plant itself looks like my Den.
    crumenatum however i cant compare photos since it bloomed without me
    knowing and hasn't bloomed since. Thats why when I saw this one opened I
    immediately scrambled to get the camera, and I think I made the right call since
    the bloom is starting to wilt already.

    Your plant certainly is Dendrobium crumenatum.

    Thanks for the confirmation Jim really appreciate it... I was surprised because I thought
    that these needs to have cool nights to bloom.

    Dendrobium crumenatum does not need cool nights to make it flower. It needs a sudden drop in temperature, like when a thunder storm occurs. Then 9 days after the temperature drop you will have flowers.

    Delphi, I am told you can cheat and pop your plant in the frig for a while to initiate flowering. I would avoid the 'snap freeze' part of the frig.

    Back in the late 1990's when I lived in Mindoro in the Philippines, I used to amaze my neighbours by getting my Dendrobium crumenatum plants to flower, when no-one elses plants would bloom. It is as simple as just pouring water, that has been chilled in the refrigerator, over your plants. Then nine days later you will have blooms. Try it, and amaze your neighbours.
