    Hi,
    my experience with dendrobium is very limited, in fact I only have two.
    Looking at your pictures seems to see another keiki on the right of the second photo.
    When in your post you say, fallen, do you mean that the cane is detached from the roots to the base?
    The photos do not show.
    Last year a similar thing happened to me as well.
    I mounted the entire cane without separating the keiki and it is doing very well.
    ciao Nicola

    Monica I had a couple of keikis emerge from a dendrobium cane. As Sriram suggested I let the roots grow longer then snapped the keikis from the cane. I potted one and mounted one on a tree. Both are doing well producing a new cane and roots.

    The stem fell off an there are no roots on stem. How did you mount. I am considering this option.

    I did not realize the picture does not show the whole piece. At the end of the stem there are no roots. If I mounted what would be best method?

    It is difficult to say which is the best way of mounting orchids.
    The environmental conditions and needs of the species must be considered.
    Also mounts generally require daily care, but then I like the way they look.
    There are many suitable materials that can be used, wood, cork, sphagnum to name a few.
    I recommend you to search the forum for 'mounting orchids' to find tips and ideas that are right for your environment.
