    Question Den Anosmum, couple questions

    I have a dendrobium anosmum in bud. It is doing something strange with it's buds, is it possible to get two flowers from the same spot? I have almost fully developed buds with things growing at their base. Also; should I help this bud open? It seems to be trying to open. Do these get stuck like phal and regular den buds at times??

    First the little growth...

    Yes, it is possible for Dendrobium anosmum to have a cluster of blooms from the same node.

    I wish they'd bloom already! lol Being able to see a little color in there is such a tease! I'm just not patient enough.
