    Default Purple & White Dendrobium

    2 weeks ago I found this lovely dendrobium at my local supermarket. It had one bloom open and when I saw the colors I knew I had to have it. The
    plant itself is only 8 inches tall but the tallest spike is a little over 12 inches. How often can I expect it to bloom? I also found a different one that had almost finished blooming for $2.

    Here is the $2.00 orchid. Very small for a dendrobium and in a 2 inch pot.
    One other growth had bloomed previously and there are 2 small new growths.
