    Default Dendrobium bellatulum culture?

    I've perused the forum to find lovely photos of this plant and many comments about it being difficult to grow. The source I am considering purchasing this plant from lists it as an easy grower...of course it all depends on your conditions, but does anyone have any cultural info? The purchased plant would be mounted and from what I understand, the plant likes to dry between waterings. I grow my mounted bulbos indoors under lights with no problemsso I assume watering would be a non-issue. Any input from those more pro at dends?

    I don't have a bellatulum but I find my other Formosum types easy to grow under cattelya conditions. They do like a short dry period in the winter months to initiate flowering in the spring.

    Thanks for the reply! I wasn't sure I'd get one at all. I love dends but have avoided them until lately....such a huge genus.
