    I don't know if anyone ever reads the code behind the posting - if they do they will find I named this as D.phillipinensis - which is a mental aberration. A.amethystoglosum is correct, although it comes from the Phillipines, I think.
    It is a lovely plant in cultivation - loves my conditions ( which mist be a lot colder than its native home ! ) and flowers at intervals through the year. Two spikes here seen, and a third on the other side developing nicely. Has produced some super new growths this year, the best is about 75cm, 2ft 6in high. If only it will last another 3 weeks, it may bring home the Dendrobium cup at the Bournemouth Show.
    I had to have several goes at this species, before I found how to grow it. It is actually a lithophyte, so wants very little wet stuff around the roots. Hence the very small pot, inl 9cm, using just sphagnum moss. But it is only dipped in the nutrien tank once every few weeks, maybe even every few months in the winter - but it gets sprayed daily with the Vandas etc.
    Never allowed to dry out.

    Thanks “Dorestman” for starting threads. It’s an informative thread on “Dendrobium amethystoglossum”. Can you provide some more information of this orchid?

    A very well grown specimen of amethystoglossum. Prime candidate for a prize.

    Pot small and tight with sphagnum moss. Water rarely, spray frequently. I have only one greenhouse so everything is at more or less the same temperature etc, one which suits cattleyas, oncidiums, vandas, paphs, etc... Say 17 winter night minimum, and aim for as much daytime lift as possible, and max temp at any time say 35.

    It seems to be great tips; I hope it should be effective. Thanks “Dorestman” for reply. Can you please prefer some nutrients or fertilizer?
