The Latourias seem to tolerate me the most. :^/
I had to vote for Latouria. They are beautiful and usual. But it was a close tie. I also love the Dockrillias, which are just plain unusual.
Can I have them all now please?
I bought a Burana Prince in Hawaii in 2009. I also have a World cup that had 6 Keikis on it that I removed. Hoping to be a good new Momma!
I just purchased a dendrobium yesterday from a big box store. It has one cane with about 6 flowers, and 3 buds. It does look like a "Mother Theresa" quite lovely. This is my very first dend. It is actually growing in a coconut shell, with that inside a pot. I see very skinny roots on top of the medium, but I want to see the entire root system. As I stated... HELP!!!! I know very little about this type of orchid. I will send a couple of pictures ( if I can remember how). I would actually like to continue growing it inside of the coconut. I thought I might put it in a basket? Please someone.....help!!!
Thank y'all so much.

Don't worry about the coconut stuff, just don't overwater. Let it grow for a while. Some of Dens are deciduous so don't freak out if its leaves start to get yellow and later drop off. I would not repot till March or April unless necessary. However, it looks like the plant might have got a fungal disease. In any case, it would not hurt to spray some fungicide, better a systemic.
I thank you for responding. Fungal disease? Oh No!!! Yesterday, I made a batch of the cinnamon,, dish liq, water, and let the dend soak for a bit, I read that this will take care of any critters. The mixture I made is supposed to treat fungal, plus a host of other things. What do you suggest I use? What is a systemic?
I feel so dumb.
I favor 'phalanthae'. I love to see Den. bigibbum with an arching/pendulous inflorescence. Also, I have one with branched inflorescences. I've never seen that in a hybrid dendrobium. They probably bred it out when they should have selected specifically for it.
I guess I'd have to say just Dendrobium. I don't think I've even heard of some of those other names on the list, shame on me. If I can KEEP my Dendrobium leucocyanum, that'll probably be my favorite and I'll consider myself lucky.
