    Beautiful! I love those but I had no idea that they bloomed that often. I guess it needs to go on my wish list. Good growing.

    Love all the blooms and 4-6 blooming on this orchid a year make it a must have! Beautiful dendrobium!

    The pink variety very lazy as compared to white form at least 2 times a year, no doubt the flowers so pretty with light pink color. Thank Jeff.

    I love this Dendrobium.

    4-6 times a year? Never heard of such a free-flowering farmeri. You must have a good clone..

    BAng Zain..lovely plant as usual..I have 3 farmeri and Im still waiting for them to bloom..still no sign of flowering..unfortunately mine are all the pink variety, they are growing well so Im hoping that I will be rewarded soon..any tips for more frutiful growing? Ive been terribly lazy so far since my son was born. I usually water once a day and fertilise once every week rotating between a growth and flowering fertiliser.
