    These make very desirable plants. They stay under 12" and are pretty easy to grow into nice specimens. Just give it a bit of a dry rest in winter. I think they like it around 60F night temp at that period.

    these also stay compact, so a 'specimen sized' plant is still pretty manageable. and older cane will also flower, not just the recent growth. i'm really beginning to appreciate dendros. they bloom small and just get better over time.

    Very nice. I'm beginning to like Dendrobiums more and more every day.
