    Dendrobium is such a large genus - divided into different sections ( very helpful in deciding how to grow them) - maybe 11 sections (?). This kind used to be called , maybe still are, Sect. phalaenopsis - which gets some people tied in a knot ( " does it mean that they are phallies ? No, it doesn't .!..) . In Thailand which is where they are mostly bred and grown, they put the young plants ( plugs) in green coconuts as the growing medium. I went to a nursery in Bangkok once, mainly concerned with the cut flower trade , but I did not know that, and they were happy to sell me a 100 or so plants ; they did not grow well for me in England - maybe I did not know enough about their requirements at that stage in my orchid journey . But on that visit I learnt that they measured their monthly sales in tonnes of flowers ( a metric tonne is maybe the same as 1000 kilograms , but whatever,) my mind boggles at that weight of flowers. Their best month had been 3 tonnes of flowers . Incidentally the plants I bought flowered for me the same year with great long spikes - the best I think was about 50 flowers on a spike... alas they were all dead a year later . I wish I could go back there and do that again, knowing what I have learnt in the years since then.
    This reminiscence inspired by recalling that Black Cat was one of the plants I bought on that trip.

    nd one from the right period showing my S/H bench with some of the dendrobes at the back towards the far end - may be interesting,the pic is dated- it comes from the personal web-site I used to run at that time.

    Very nice setup you had Geoff!

    That's a shadehouse?

    Wow - Geoff - so many blooms at once! I see a few cymbidiums just peeking out to the right - love to see your photos of them sometime - and this is a greenhouse, is it not - S/H referring to semi-hydro and not "shadehouse"?

    (Deepest apologies to you, Neha, for hijacking your thread temporarily - still in awe of your gorgeous den.!)
