    Are you sure you don't have Dendrobium farmeri? Bulbophyllums have unjointed pseudobulbs, not cane-like pseudobulbs.

    Yes, It is a dendrobium Fameri. I have utilised flowering booster (Yates product) for a couple of times yet no success. So any suggestion?

    Hi John Teo, In Malaysia there are 2 type of Den farmeri pink and white. The pink variety is very stingy as compared to white one.The pink color very beautiful only one or twice blooming a year however the white variety at least 3 to 5 times a year. I'm worry that yours is pink color actually they need the dry spell for at least 2 to 3 weeks to initiate the spikes and need at least 50 to 60% filter light hope it will give you some idea.Zain
