    Give your dendrobium lots of light and do NOT water too much! I would even suggest repot. I think your dendro was overwatered and might have some roots roted. I would take it out the pot and keep it bare root for a few days and just misting the roots once a day. Put it in Hydrogen Peroxide for about 10 min. when you take it out of the pot. Don't worry- it will be fine!

    Hi Kutay ! To me your Dendrobium looks fine. dendrobiums are deciduous, their leaves will fall off and only the cane will remain, and then a new growth will emerge. From the picture of your pot, the potting medium also looks good, not too fine. As Margo suggests do not over water. Once a week should be fine until new growth appears. dendrobiums have enough stored water in the pseudobulbs. I don't think it needs repotting immediately. The yellowing of leaves is natural. The black spots look like are from sun scorching, avoid direct sunlight.
    And by the way the blooms look beautiful !

    I agree with Amey, do not repot now. The leaf that fell off was probably an old leaf. Your plant looks very healthy. It does have some leaf spot that might be a fungus. For now just watch it and see if it gets worse. You can take the babies when the tips of the roots turn green, this is usually when you would repot also. Here in the states that would be in the spring. I'm not sure when that would happen in your part of the world.
    Also your english is very good, not to worry we understand you. Welcome to the forum.

    If the babies are at the bottom attatched to the plant, I would not remove them. If they are growing like that then they are new growths, and they will be the ones to get flowers next. It is good for them to be attatched to the older canes so they have strength to grow and bloom.

    Hi Kutay! The dendrobium is beautiful. The new growths (babies) should not be removed if they are growing from the medium. I don't see them in the photos, so I am not sure if they are new growth or if perhaps your dendrobium is producing keikies (new little plants up on the actual orchid). A photo of the growth would help us offer advice. I wish you lots of luck!

    Cheers,
    BD

    This type of dendrobium is not deciduous and should retain the leave on each cane for several years. You stated that the plant gets indirect eastern light with no direct sun. I've found that the hard cane guys actually grow and bloom best if they receive a few hours of direct sun every day. I keep mine in a window that gets about 4 hours of direct morning light every day. I'd gradually move it up brighter light.
