    Default Trash Can Dens

    This was the NOID Den that I rescued out of the trash when my neightbor moved. I think that it is thanking me for it's survival. It reminds me of Sweet Peas.

    Well, I have to admit that I threw out a Bllra that was just not doing anything and seemed to be dying. So out on the compost pile it went about 6 weeks ago. Went out last week to add another item to the pile and found a 12" spike on the Bllra. Maybe the threat of death DOES work!

    That looks just like my first dendrobium. It was tall, over 36 inches, to tip of spike. Well, one day I heard a crash and it had fallen off the table. Broke its little neck (spike that is). I wanted to cry but was thankful it had not broken more. I put the spike in a bud vase and it lasted over 1 month before the blooms fell. It was in bloom for a month before it fell, so it is a hardy little devil. Enjoy your find.

    It looks like a Dend. phalenopsis, Cin, but I wouldn't trust my guess as a positive ID.
