My second attempt to grow nobile type Dendro. Cant take credit for the blooms, its already in bud when I bought it.
A great display.
Tanya, your new baby is so lovely, a real confection.
I wish I had better luck with the nobiles, in my care, they survive, but do not thrive.
I have a few wimpy ones that I've been nursing along, one even has a bud on it, yes, just one lonely little bud.
Well, at least fingers crossed I'll finally get to see what color she is . . . yet another rescue case, with NOID of course.
LOL ~ Can anyone hear me, over the din of all my "pound puppies" barkin'?
Lovely. I also kill dendrobiums without even trying . By the way, is that one fragrant?
Mine did not bloom this year , Gonna print your picture and stick it on my stick forest lolol . Gin
Very pretty nobile, Tanya! I always kick myself trying to buy one of these glowing purple nobiles but somehow always procrastinate.
Most nobile dendrobiums require a bit of coolish condition to grow well and bloom since their ancestors are from the Himalaya. Too hot or too cold might not do the trick. Lately people from Hawaii are trying to breed the heat tolerance into these nobiles. So some of newer hybrids might do better in the home or the greenhouse and they don't require a drop in the temperature in order to bloom.
Thanks for the comments. I hope this one will survive the summer heat.
