    Default Dendrobium White Grace 'Sato'

    This is my all time favorite dendrobium hands down. It produces large spikes with good bud count and does so several times a year. The flowers are large with a delightful gardenia like scent. It currently has two spikes. I accidently broke the top half of the one spike as it was developing. Tonight when I took a quick pic of the flowers I discovered two more spikes developing. The blooms last quite a long time so it should be in bloom well into spring with the two new spikes forming. Hopefully nothing will happen and they will be ready for the spring shows. As I had mentioned I am planing to get rid of most of my dendrobiums to make room for more paphs and phrags---especially phrags. This is one of my dendrobiums that will definately be kept. The color is such a pristine white, the fragrance delightful and as I said the spikes are always large with a good bud count. It has developed into a large plant with very sturdy spikes. I reccommend this one to any of you who love dens. It seems to do well for me with light from a large east window. Cool temps does not seem to phase it at all.

    There seem to be alot of positive features to this Dendrobium and especially the frequent blooming and high bud/bloom count. Add to this that it's lovely and I say you've got a wonderful orchid friend there. AL

    Beautiful, bill. And with a gardenia-like scent? Wow. It must be very fragrant.
