    Default Dendrobium: Nagasaki

    This is the other dend. orchid I bought-- 4 inch pot*, not yet fertilized, but have the Grow More blue crystal 6.30.30 if that's indicated while I am prepping for winter blooms. It's in a cool west facing window, could move it to south west if that's better . I note some new growth, but this looks to be branches, not buds. My instructor suggested this new , cooler room (mb 45-55 deg F at night) would be better for the dends.

    Any help in ID'ing the hybrid type in order to determine when to fertilize, etc. will be most appreciated. My instructor also suggested fertilizing on sunny days, when the plant can take better advantage of the fert. I have posted a few zooms into the new growth, and what do folks think of the yellow leaf or leaves? Is this normal deciduous fall shedding, or too little light in the last couple of weeks?
    Thanks,

    JD

    * I bought both dends. at a greenhouse, and they said they should not need repotting for a year or two.

    I know Bruce posted some general guidelines in you intro thread so I won't repeat.

    My first question is what is that media? (What is it potted in?)

    I see it has a tag. Is there a name on the tag?

    tag says "den. nagasaki" and reverse says "7/08".

    the other says "sailor boy" and reverse says "10/08"

    Thanks again,

    I found this info googling, "Named Dendrobium Nagasaki, this was a cross between a nobile, Sagamusume, and Dendrobium moniliform, a Japanese species.".

    I think this is why I was instructed to place it where it gets cold at night, since it must function as a nobile.
