    I don't have any Den nobiles, but according to the link in Orchid-Man's thread about Dendrobium culture: Dendrobium nobile leaves are deciduous after two years. Hope that helps.

    Typically, nobile type canes will lose all its leaves before sending out flower buds.
    But, going back to hybrids again, it would not be surprising to see a soft cane sprout flowers before it loses all its leaves.
    I have seen some soft canes with full healthy foliage but already has produced flowers on the cane.

    The majority of my Nobiles hold the leaves two years . I have a nobile Den. Yellow Song 'Canary' that blooms at least twice a year . Whenever the new canes mature the plant will be covered with flowers . Do you have a name on your plant? I will have to try the magnesium this year . Do not remove old canes as they will flower also. I'm new on O T so haven't figured how to add photo's yet .

    Default nobile Den. Yellow Song 'Canary'

    I hope I did this right . This blooms at least twice a year without any rest or chill . Well worth having if you like yellow flowers . some fragrance also .

    That's a pretty one, Rocco.

    I have no idea what type of Den my NoID is... but its green-caned and does NOT like to get dry for more than a day (the leaves start to droop). How's that for odd? It's growing a new cane right now, too. Thought this was an odd time of year for it, isn't it?
