    Default Dendrobrium and puppy mishap.

    My den 'Big Ham" was just growing like a weed with two healthy stems. One flowering and the other with nice green healthy leaves. My daughter's puppy decided it would play around it and as a result tipped the plant over with the result the healthy leafed stem was cut off. Does anyone have an idea of what this will do to my once happy plant? Will it have an effect on the flowering stem?

    sorry to hear about that. There would be some setback but these are quite hardy plants and not to worry. It should comeback to good health. don't think it would have an effect on the other flowering stem.

    I agree with ksiramkumar. They are hardy, so don't worry.
