    Default Dendrobium amethystoglossa

    I have several goes at this species, and quickly or slowly lost them without ever getting a new growth or flowers, but this one I bought earlier this year, maybe March, and since it did not seem to be active, I carefully potted it up and have just sprayed since then, and now am rewarded with a spike. I intend to do the same until it produces a new growth - if it ever does ...
    It is a Phillipines species I believe, so if any of our members from that part of the world can give me any tips, I'll be grateful.Name:  Dend-amethystoglossa-1.jpg

    All my orchids grow in one greenhouse: I have just reset the 'stat to 15 night ( 4.30pm until 8.am) and 20 day - the remaining hours. If there is any sun even in mid-winter the emp willl lift above that by day . The plant is hanging up with the Vandas to get god light, although currently the glass is very mucky with green algae as a result of all the hanging plants ( of which there very many) being sprayed most days now, and twice a day in warm weather. Spraying is just with rain water - growing plants also get dunked in water/nutrient maybe weekly in the summer, but much less frequently in winter. But like I say, I haven't relly done anything with this plant yet !

    I just got this last week. I bought it without even knowing how the bloom looks like (one of the many impulse buying that I have made) and am planning to look for it in the net until seeing yours. Hope mine will bloom here. Thanks for sharing Geoff .
