    That is one healthy dendrobium! Wow...I see it was in clay before, I would repeat that as well. I may switch a few to your potting ingredients. Mine need a dryer medium than plain bark and if your roots look that great, I think i'll try it as well. In fact I have a few to be repotted when the heat is a little better this fall. Lovely blooms and amazing roots...great job!

    Thank you, Connie. I hope the change-over medium works good for you! I understand that some people seem to do well with 100% Prime Agra, but with my conditions...I just couldn't keep even the dens and catts quite moist enough. I know they need to be grown rather dry.....but geez. So, apparently you and I have total opposite growing conditions.
    Thanks again,
    Vicki
