    Default Dendrobium pierardii?

    Got a few keikis of this from a friend not knowing what it was. Over the first winter, all the leaves dropped off and it looked dead, I put it aside but thankfully didn't throw it away. Discovered in spring last year that it had new growth and after trying out different pots and environments, it has finally bloomed! Definitely not as luxuriant and bountiful as others but I'm so pleased with the flowers!

    Yes, it is a pierardii. You will get more blooms if you keep it drier during the rest period. I see in the photo, some leaves are still green. If you dry it so that all the leaves fall, I think you can expect a better show next blooming.
