    This is a really nice one, need one for myself!

    You seem to have LOTS of Dendrobiums, how many do you have? Any chance of getting a list of all of yours?

    Dendrobium, Vanda and recently paphs are my favorites. I should have around 100 odd species of Dendrobium (I think.) I will see if I can list all of them

    You have a very nice plant there ! I too am collecting species dendrobes - but their needs are so different from one to the next. I have
    Baker and Baker on this subject as then one I look to, to decide how I will try to grow each - much better than any of the two or three other Dendrobe specilaist books I have. Remembering which is which is another thing - so nowadays I print a label and stick it on the pot , e;g; saying "no water from November until new growths seen, maybe in May " or whatever.

    I agree, is quite difficult to provide culture for every different species. Last season I decided to stop fertilizing for all my orchids from November 1st week to last week of Jan and now I am compensating by providing fertilization twice a week during growth season and so far has been good. I water all of them during the winter months as regular schedule or may skip a day or two in-between

    Very nice.. I have not seen this colour of faciferum locally. The ones I saw in a nursery were orangey-red. This species is from section Crumenata, so it can rebloom from the end part of the canes, which become skinny and leafless. Do not cut these off.
