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?
Very pretty flowers! How are the Dendrobium doing that have been in water for a year?

Good looking blooms.
Your plant is so beautiful. Do yu grow in the sunroom or windowsill?
Thank you so much
All of the orchids I have are in water culture except those that are naturally semi-terrestrial, which are the paphiopedilum, phragmepediums and the cymbidiums.
I was planning on making a thread for the six-month report on how the water culture experiment is doing which is soon since I started mid-August. I have no negatives to report only positives. I will try to do that in the next week. There are loads of you tube videos on water culture. I watched quite a few and then made some adaptations.
... to add. I just took Maiden Charlotte down off her shelf and counted her new spikes. She has 12 - maybe 13. In many cases there are two spikes per cane. I love this orchid.
