    Default Dendrobium bigibbum var

    I got two of these dendrobiums sometime ago which were in need of repotting. One was already blooming so I figured I would just wait. The other one just started spiking so I figured I'd go ahead and divide. Here are some pictures of the divisions I have left over. I got 13 healthy divisions out of one plant, potted five and mounted the rest. I have better success with the mounted plants, they grow new roots, new pseudobulbs, and flower all at the sametime, the potted ones are doing fine as well just much slower growers.
