Interesting concept. I have only one Dend, a mini that I inherited from someone who bought it in bloom and then didn't want to take care of it afterwards. But with my Catts I would have to say that I have never seen orientation make a difference. Most of my Catts have initiated new growth by this time, and several have initiated multiple new growths. The multiple growths are going in different directions, with the exeption of one plant that has 4 new growths all growing out the same way. I do turn my Catts to get the buds growing the best way, once the buds are initiated.
I'll be very interested to hear what , Rob, Kev and BD have to say. Not only for their valuable input, but because they are always so entertaining!
