Size:  324.9 KBThis is my first bloom of this orchid. The plant itself does not have too many canes or leaves, but to my surprise it blossomed. The flowers are nit as many as I have seen some pictures but I hope if it does not die that it will have more flowers next time.[ATTACH=CONFIG]

    This is one of my favourite dendrobe; maybe because I find it is one which loves my conditions here in UK, grown in a greenhouse with a night minimum temperature of the order of 12 or 13 in the winter and 16 or 17 in the summer, and kept always very wet - I grow in sphagnum moss. I won Best Dendrobium with one plant at an International show here in UK a few years ago with 14 spikes. Very regrettably that plant got damaged by overheating when I had some technical problems, but a replacement is now up to three new growths, so I have hopes !

    Mr Geoff, just wondering how high the humidity? In the case of high humidity would you still grow in sphagnum?

    Yes, I keep the humidity as high as possible in the Summer months, by spraying with rain water , perhaps every other day, unless the temperature gets above 30 deg.C., and then I spray as often as I can, like three times a day, trying to keep the temperature down. Now, mid-winter, with the heating on the day temperature is 16 unless the sun comes out for more than a few minutes, and rarely gets up to 20, so no spraying, but I dip this plant in rain water every few days, and the wet moss provides some local extra humidity.
    But UK is. - no doubt - different from New Orleans, and you have to find what suits your conditions. I hope this is helpful.
