    Default Dendrobium 'Cherries Jubilee' help

    Hey everyone, I recently got a new dendrobium called 'Cherries Jubilee' It was a cutting from a larger plant.
    I know that this is a phalaenopsis type den, so I should probably care for it similarly. My question is, because it is still a baby, do I need to care for it differently than a more mature plant?

    Here is a picture of the actual plant as well as a picture of what the flowers are supposed to look like.

    If those two young canes are attached to that tall cane, then this plant is not really considered a young plant. It is a mature plant with young canes.

    Given the proper conditions, those young canes could mature within one year and produce flowers.

    Well, I guess a more proper question is, Is this a miniature dendrobium? Because the size and diameter of the canes would suggest it.

    Should I care for it as I would a phal type den?

    I'm not that familiar with that hybrid, so I checked the RHS site for parentage.

    Den. Cherries Jubilee
    Seed Parent: Den. Tokiko Inaba (commercial hybrid, parentage goes back several crosses)
    Pollen Parent: Den. bigibbum (species)

    Den. bigibbum would not really be considered a miniature.
    I cant find much info on the Tokiko Inaba, all my searches loop back to the Tokiko Inaba x bigibbum hybrid.
