    Cool Dendrobium White Grace 'Sato'

    This dendrobium blooms more often than any other dendrobium i've ever owned. This time it bloomed with three spikes. Can't wait to see what this does in a couple more years. It's a big plant but I don't care...anything that blooms this often i'll find a nice big spot for. lol

    I let the single Sheherazade flower stay in the picture...it only gave me one bud this time. I don't know about this plant, it always seems to just barely limp along. I may have to repot it one more time. Maybe it would do better mounted...who knows. Nothing i've done so far seems to make it look better.

    Those dend flowers are very graceful! And the Catt is lovely as well, even if it's not performing as expected.

    Great looking dendrobium. Very pretty Jewel Box - Slc's never seem to do well for me ( I understand they prefer lower temps than we have here). I've killed quite a few Slc's including Jewel Box.

    Very nice dendrobium and Slc. Connie. Never seen this shape in flower and such a high count per spike.

    Yew, I also thought so earlier, but I have found that hybrids fare better than the species, and if maintained quite moist year round, are not bother by the heat, Slc. bloom for me regularly.

    Thanks everyone. This dendrobium is one of the easiest plants to grow. No matter where I sit it, it grows spikes and new p-bulbs quite often. It is a large plant, but if you have the room they are nice bloomers!

    Love yours Connie. I find the same with mine it just blooms like crazy and ohhhhhhhh that wonderful gardenia scent. It is a big plant but like you I will always find room for it. It seems to bloom even if it gets less light than one usually gives dens. It is sure to be a big winner at shows in the future. Love your pic.

    I've actually had the slc for three or four years. It has always looked halfway dead and needs to be sprayed against rot on a regular basis. She is gorgeous, but she's a diva. lol
