    Default Dendrobium Gatton Sunray

    Haven't had a plant of this for many years. Got this one from a mate a while back & its first flowering for me, just a small plant.
    Still one of the finest Dends I've ever had or seen. IMO.

    Agreed. Has stood the test of time. Been around since 1919.

    Give it more light, Jack,. my brother has a clump growing in the full Malaysian sun and it flowers several times a year. Mine grows in the shed that receives full morning sun to 11.00am and half shade thereafter.

    Thanks Yew Sung, will give that a try, mine is now in winter rest and might need to get a little more light. This year I am turning the irrigation on for all my winter rested orchids every 6 days for 3 minutes just to give them a little misting. I am also going to bring a few in doors and put in my refrigerator for a couple of days as we are suppose to be warmer this coming winter then last year.

    Have to agree, too much shade on this & flowering is restricted. Mine grew under the Vanda's in the old plant house & no flowers, hung it up with the Vanda & it produced a spike. Now hanging in new extension with Vanda's, heaps of light & looking even better..

    Flowers are just as good as the day they opened Zain. No sign of aging.
