Size:  89.9 KBGreetings, I am putting pictures up of my other plants. About a month ago, I was sad that another "Moth Orchid" died. BD had mentioned it would be good to get a "healthy plant" to cheer me up. Being on a low budget, I tried a "want add" called Craigslist. This is where people post everything and everything. So... I put it out there if some one didn't want their Orchids anymore, I would take them. two days later on the doorstep of the Zen Center, I found a box of 8 babies! Pots, and filler! With a note: For Sharon! Two of them where beyond saving. These guys are doing fine... I think. It is difficult to find what type they are. Maybe some one can help me with this? These guys seem to like the window sill, and more water... than the Phals. A totally different personality! I will be asking many questions in the future... I could use all the help anyone will give me!

    Those are hard caned dendrobiums. They can be some of the easiest orchids to grow. They can handle amazing amounts of sunlight, and even if the older growths leaves burn, the new growth will handle it....even on the highest levels. There should be a care sheet somewhere on the sight for Dendrobiums. Mine can handle from 50-100 degrees. The hotter the temps, the more you water them. And they like to be given the same kind of orchid fertilizer you would use for a Phalaenopsis. They like small pots and you let them dry out before watering again. Outside, water every 2-3 days. Inside water every 4-6 days.
    Lucky You! You'll enjoy growing these.

    Yes, as Connie said, dendrobiums.

    Cheers,
