    Default Look at this color tone (round 2)

    I posted some pics of a Den is D. Burana Fancy - Mdm. Uraiwan when first purchased in bloom due to its odd pale green/purple color scheme (very exotic). It has bloomed again 2 1/2 mo. later on the same stock/cane and the colors are just as awesome as their were back in May. I did not know that this dens can rebloom as fast as a couple of months.

    The first time back in may when the blooms were posted, they grew in a round cluster. This time, the blooms are much better uniformed.

    Thanks Bruce,

    I had almost giving up growing dens because whatever potting medium that I used, the roots would just go bad and the plant would eventually die. It wasn't until I read a couple of posts here last year that discuss dens and lava rocks. I tried it with 100 % lava rocks, with 1/4 strength feeding each week and the results have been great.

    Thank you for the compliment but I like to return the favor. What I did to the plant was using the information that I learned here on the rv-orchid forum. You have an amazing orchid site.

    That's beautiful coloration, Trung! And I love it's big ears!

    Congrats on figuring out how to make this guy happy! That's all orchid growing is about. Figuring out what each wants, one plant at a time.
