    Would be great to have a photo even if it is just one bloom! Your D Green Lantern looks great. Do you think it is more vigorous than the Dendrobium Roongkamol do you grow them the same way? How do you grow them?

    To your first question - most probably is. All my dendrobes are potted in coarse charcoal chunks. I grow them under the same conditions as for my cattelyas and strap leaf vandas. Water twice a day; fertilise weakly weekly. Not knowing where you live it is hard for me to say whether my cultural conditions would be suitable for you.
    Both the plants are equally vigorous growers and both are first time bloomers but undoubtedly Green Lantern is more floriferous.

    In Brooklyn NY apartment. grow on windowsill, fire escape, some on the roof in the summer. A Dendrobium goldschmidtianum just rebloomed Stefano Giovannini's Photos | Facebook

    I can't water twice a day.

    I use a mix of coco chips, lava rock sometimes bark or sphagnum. With some i use the stringy coco fibers in net pot sitting inside a pot. Dryes fast but keeps the humidity around the roots.

    Your growing medium sounds OK to me. In Thailand which is drier than here in Malaysia, coco chips (coconut husks) is used extensively in nurseries as it is 15 times cheaper than charcoal. But here in Malaysia we seldom use them for adult plants as they retain moisture for too long a time and also break down much faster than charcoal.
