    wow Aleska - I am so surprised that the miltonia has shooted and rooted from a cutting - I never imagined that it would happen. My Miltonia is in a mixture of bark and peat which I am not sure is the best for them. I think that they are meant to be kept a bit more moist so I hadn't changed it to plain bark. Hey but with only one - actually two - I bought another at the weekend (fool!) I am not exactly an expert.

    I am really pleased for you - and it gives me hope that all will not be lost if one of my cats decided to knock my poor plants over.

    Thank you! I am surprised too! I'm holding it in a pure bark, but I think I'll give it a bit of a peat!

    Well, my cuttings are all doing well, just, I think that moss in which I potted Dendrobium holds too much water! Is Dend sensitive on too wet compost? I've been told to pot it in a pure bark, but I really don't know what to do!

    Can you tell me?

    My Phal haven't created leaves for more than half a year! A month before it finished blooming, I've cuted flower spikes, and nothing is happening! Spikes are still green, but buds are stil sleeping, no foliage are crated, and root growth has increased! Is that problem?

    And one more question, how can I recognise is my Dend one of the deciduos or evergreen specie?

    Here is how mounted Epidendrum looks like now. It is growing well as you can see!

    Is it possible that noone knows any answer on my questions?

    I am not really sure if there are certain ways to tell from just looking at the plant (other than the obvious- leaves falling off in winter and coming back in the following season). I suggest you PM Murray from New Zealand. (Orchid-man). He seems to know quite a bit about dendrobiums and their cultivation/care.

    Good luck!

    Cheers,

    Well... It seems that nothing has left to me except wating the winter... I think that this is the sort that requires dormancy because it's canes are bamboo-like, and it have bulbs... Time will show!
