    Default Dendrobium Adele Fortesque back from the brink

    This poor little Den Adele Fortesque is one of my first victims at the beginning of my orchid learning curve. It copped every mistake that could be made eg. frost, heat, direct sun, lack of water etc, etc, etc. I had 2 of these and this one was the only one to survive it wasn't going anywhere in a pot except to the compost bin.So I mounted as a last ditch effort to save it. and so far so good it has produced 2 keikis plus 1 on the way. Still very small but promising thamk goodness as i have found this variety very difficult to replace. I haven't found another one for sale sinceName:  2015-01-22 09.04.01-2.jpg
