    Default Dendrobium anosmum

    This cane was the only one that bloomed this year. The vey long cane flowed over the lip of the pot, and the weight of the flowers was giving it a kink so I had to tie it up to straighten it out. That is why the flowers seem to growing the 'wrong way'. OOPs, I forgot That I did a rotate of the Pic. so the flowers are in the correct position now!

    Lovely, Angela. At least your one cane has nearly 2 dozen flowers. My anosmums this year have been very stingy with blooms 5 on the alba and only 3 on the normal form.

    Angela: From what I've read, this species likes a cool, dry winter to flower. I don't associate cool and dry with Barbados. What's your secret?

    In my opinion to get great blooms is to grow it well during it's growth followed by a dry and bright rest. The species in not endemic to cold winter regions. It is native to a native to Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Philippines, Indonesia, and Papua and New Guinea.

    Thanks. Well, now lets see what I can tell you, while Winter we do not have, we do have COOLER months from Dec. - Mar. To get these species to bloom we have to restrict watering from Dec-Jan. (with just a good spraying now and then to keep the plant alive.) They flower well for most growers here.
