    Default Dendrobium Fuchs Blue Twist x Compactum x Lasianthera care

    Anyone growing this? I've had one now for a few years, it is a reliable bloomer and puts out 1 to two new canes a year. I am currently growing it in a clay pot but it is one of my last orchids that has not been transferred to a basket. I know I should leave well enough alone but I really want to put it in a basket. Is anyone growing this type in a basket with success.

    I would, as you put it, leave it alone. It is stunning. If you move it to a basket, keep the conditions as close to the same as it is now. My dendrobiums like to be potted tightly in a free draining mix. Good luck!

    cheers,

    Bruce I wish I knew how to leave well enough alone! Actually that picture is from last year, It has a much bigger and better spike right now! I just snapped these photos tonight.
