    Those are beautiful. I have a dendrobium that I am nursing along. Don't know if I have the right growing conditions for it but I'm trying. Hopefully I'll be able to post some beautiful pics like you have some time in the future

    Thank you. I find, in my climate, Den. are the least problematic. I grow mine outside 24/7 with 50% shade cloth. and my potting medium is Aliflor 75% and 25% charcoal. with this medium I have to water morning and afternoon, except in the rainy season when I have to decide when they are dyr enough to need watering.
    I see that you are growing on the windowsill. The only advise I can give is to say that Dens. like bright conditions to bloom (not necessarily direct sun, but some sun)
    Good Luck, and stick with it you will get results.

    Thanks for the tip, Angela. I may move it more towards where my catts are. I am growing them under lights. Don't have to worry bout the direct sun too much. Unfortunately in the Seattle area the sun is a fleeting thing
