    Default NEWS FLASH!! Diane blooms Dendrobium!!

    Can you believe it?? Me, the grim reaper of dendrobiums, has bloomed one. I got this as a bare, basically rootless division last year at the orchid show in March. I stuck it in small chc and put it outside per Hoa's instructions. It's been out there ever since, being happily neglected. It's grown tons of roots, but no new growth. But it did reward me with these:

    I see next season's theme for Survivor...LOL!

    Congratulations, Diane! It's looking like I might have some bud activity on one of my Dends - that would be a first for me, as well! Do you think the influence of Doc Spock is the common factor?
