    Default Dendrobium Maiden Charlotte

    I love this Den. It is a cross between Den. rhodostictum x aberrans. I got it about a month ago. It had about 8 spikes of blossoms on it and the grower said they had been in bloom since May. It also had six new spikes which have opened or soon will since I got it. I think one of the spikes is an older one. I notice it has about a half dozen new growths popping out. It stays small. I am keeping it in my glass bare root culture. It seems happy.

    I have been searching for a rhodostictum but can't find one that is in good shape. However, the blossoms on this hybrid are very close so I can live with it instead if I have to.

    Very cool Karin! Do you have a lot of your orchids as bare root in glass?

    I have all of them (except the paphs and cymbidiums) in this sort of culture - little different watering depending on what they are. For instance the catt types get soaked for 24 hours then are completely dry for 3 days, then soaked again for 24 hours and are dry for 2 days. This keeps me on a weekly schedule. The phals have the tips of the roots in the water except a few that are rescues and having trouble adjusting. They are on the soak, dry schedule. Since I started this two months ago I have new roots, buds, and I just found the ninth phal in spike. As soon as the fifth blossom opens on my Den Sanderae I will post it. It spiked under this method. I am totally sold on it.

    I will let you know in a year. None of them are in water.
