    Default Dend new spikes?

    Please tell me these are new spikes. This is my very first re-potting project from my very first dendrobium.

    Sorry I don't think they are. Still it is very nice to have new growths like that.

    New growth. The new spikes will come from much higher up on the dendrobium cane.

    Cheers,

    Cool! It will be good to keep track of how long the growth takes to mature. This will help you know what to expect in the future.

    Here's the latest photo of my Dend. To me they look like new spikes but I may be totally wrong being a greenhorn on orchids. The second photo is another Dend and I cannot tell if it's a keiki or new bloom. I just can't handle the suspense.

    I have a Dend with 4 leafless stalks. Hoping that it would grow. It didn't die, but had no new leaves for almost 2 years. It bloomed this year and the blosomes were realy deformed. I removed the remaining spikes. Only then did this plant finaly start to grow. It is now sending new growth from the root system.

    The first photo: Still too young to be sure if it is a keiki or spike.
    Second photo: definitely a flower spike.

    Default New Growth Looks Like Roots.

    I think the growth in the first picture is new aerator roots. That is a good sign. I have a den in the same condition, and was wondering if I should cut the canes or toss it. There are no leaves on them, and have not been any in a while, but the canes are still green. I was thinking that maybe that canes were taking up too much energy for new growth, but now I am pretty sure. Going to be cutting my canes shortly.
