    Default Dendrobium anosmum 'A Touch of Class'

    My third blooming of this one, I am still waiting for the day when I have more then one reed bloom, I did have two new growths before getting put into winter rest and I was hoping, maybe next year. It gets watered and fertilized except during winter rest, any suggestions on getting multi reeds blooming, please let me know!

    Nice! I'll have to keep my eye out for this one. I think the trick is to not give them a winter rest for a few years. Just grow the heck out it.

    This is just something I'm trying Jack. The idea is to not aim for a blooming for a couple of years. I'm cutting back on water and not fertilizing but not giving the cool temps required for a good flowering. The pb you have in flower now won't flower next year but any new ones that grow this year should. So I think that if you can grow 3-4 new pb's each year but not encourage flowering then after a few years you have 6-7 pb's to give the proper treatment to encourage flowering.

    We all have come up with ways to do things sometimes they work sometimes they don't, with that and what we find by research we all have tried to find the best way to get these orchids to do what we want. If it works for you I hope you will spread the word!

    Thanks Zain, the person I got this from is from the Philippines and lives in the center of Florida. He has done many clones, I have a few already and will look again this coming weekend as he will be at a show at Fairchild Gardens.

    I read that giving more light in winter and less during summer is part of culture. I am sure this could be disputed. BTW I love your Den.

    I think this is what most Australian species want, but would not be right for this species which is much 'softer'. My plant, a first time flowering seedling, was just opening flowers when I left home a few days ago, and that certainly stayed in a warm cabinet, with only English winter light, no supplements.

    Thanks Geoff. I saw the grower today of this Denbrobium at an orchid show I asked him about winter care. He told me that he does water his but only about 1-2 times per month during the winter, so I will be trying that out next year.
