    Default Dendrobium polytrichum

    The moonsoon rains have started, probably trigering flowering of this plant. It blooms irregularly as well, usually with only one or two flowers.

    Strange looking Dendrobium. Pretty flower though.

    Ntgerald, last time I went home to Pinas for a visit, I saw a Dendrobium (it got a cane that looks like a Dendrobium) with terete leaves. Google turned out Dendrobium junceum, was that right? There was no flower so I have no way to verify it.

    Default terete dend

    tanya,

    I have seen only two terete dends here, D. junceum and the other one is this. Based on probabilities alone, what you saw was probably D. junceum because that is lots more common compared to D. polytrichum.

    Hmm. Mass exodus from the other side? Good to see you here too!


    Beautiful plant- I would totally kill it. Like in two days.

    This is a must have if it fits my conditions. What are its growing conditions? :check:

    I REALLY like it.

    P.S. what is "the other side"?

    Matt,

    It's another forum which must not be mentioned here! Keeping to the Star Wars theme, I'll just say it's the dark side of the force! LOL

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Default growing conditions

    Matt,
    This plant is grown in an area a bit brighter than where phals are. Not quite Vanda light.

    I am a compulsive waterer but since it is mounted on treefern, I guess it stood up to abuse.
