    Cool Dendrobium crumenatum

    Another tiny, white dendrobium. this guy is a basket full of keikies. I like the way she grows, but it makes taking photos difficult. A couple blooms here, a couple there, all over the place. hahaha

    Known as the pigeon orchid. I am told that it flowers a couple of weeks after a thunderstorm in Singapore etc. This is assumed to be because the plants then get a temperature shock , as the heavy rain falling from a few thousand feet may well be say 10 or 20 degrees colder than the air which has surrounded the plants normally. So the answer to get "all your flowers" at once, instead of a few now and then, would be to try and keep it an equable temperature and then give it a shock , perhaps with ice water ? But I also understand that the flowers are rather short-lived, and that does not exactly put the plant at the top of my wish list . But, hey, its good to have something different - and you need a challenge Bruce , ha-ha....
    I have to say its a pretty flower ! Maybe I should root out my prejudices !

    Thanks Geoff! I read that it needs a ten degree drop to induce blooms. With the wacky weather we have here in Arkansas lately, no problem. Probably why it is blooming now!! haha...

    Perhaps as the plant gets older, it would produce more flowers per spike. I usually get long sprays of very fragrant flowers. Actually, every time they are in bloom, it looks like there would be a garden wedding in my yard with all the pendant sprays of white flowers.
