    Default Almost went in the composters

    This is a Den. devonianum that lost its roots over the winter but appears to be coming back. I thumb tacked the remaining PB's in the grooves of a piece of cedar rail, have that laying in a tray of moist sphagnum and lightly mist twice a day. So far seven little keiki.

    Looks good to me!

    I've read somewhere that you can take certain types of Dendrobiums and cut the stalk in 3" pieces leaving a couple of nodes and lay them down in some sphagnum moss slightly covering the tops and you can propagate that way.

    Never tried it. But I was given several dens that was nothing but a cane sticking out of the potting medium and they sprouted keikis.

    In fact, here's one that I took a picture off just after reading your thread.
    The pot contains about four different canes which I combined into one pot.

    These are tough little guys: I have been doing some experimentation on 3 little keikis:
    One Planted in Straight Perlite: one in plain Water: And one in dirt and perlite: ... and they're all doing great.

    You can probably see in the background although a bit blurry.

    Good Job.
