    Beautiful! I have four larger dendrobium that should have flowered this winter ( spectabile, kingianum, chrysotoxum and aggragatum). I dutifully put them on the back deck every day at 4 pm and brought them back in at 5 am all of last spring and summer. By "in" I mean inside the open patio doors. Fertilized every week and cut way back on watering at the beginning of October. By the end of October they were all showing spikes (the kingianum had an even dozen) Then I had to move them to their winter area to make room for other plants that had to come inside. The only one that flowered was the aggragatum and only two of five spikes. The rest all withered and dried up. Sometimes I get so jealous of you folks that live in warmer climes. LOL

    Sorry to hear that Chris. They would love some direct sun during winters. I usually put them out in direct sun during this period to simulate their natural habitat where most of these grow on deciduous trees and get more sun during winter.
