    Question These are dend spikes, right?

    Hi all!

    I have a Dend. Upin King 'Serenade' that I've had since August, I repotted it into S&H in early Septemer '08 when it had many more leaves...since then, its dropped all but 3 leaves and started to spike out! At least, I think these are spikes, can someone who knows Dends confirm for me? Thanks!! Happy Saturday!

    You got it! Looks like it's gonna be a beauty. Try not to break them off like I do.

    Yep, definitely looks like spikage. Congrats!

    Breaking them off should not be a concern. Judging by the cane, appears to be a nobile-type den -- the spikes will be an inch long or less. Bud blast will be the issue if anything.

    Yes, those are spikes/buds. Like Paul said - you have a nobile type dendrobium. Congratulations!

    Cheers,
