    Default Dendrobium nobile

    So I recieved these 4 Den. nobile keikis from a friend of mine, about a month ago. They are growing nice, one of them has a new growth of it's own. I wanted to know how long will it take untill they will bloom. They're about 10 inches long.
    I also got a Paph hybrid, a cool growing one I think, and I want you to take a look at it and tell me if it looks ok to you (I checked the roots and they look great, no root rot at all). Thanks in advance, Gabi Borza.

    I forgot to ask you, should I give the den. nobile keikis a winter rest period this year or not, since they are that small?

    Since they are already so large, they will probably bloom next year for you. Not sure about the winter rest question. We cut back on water, but still water once a week in the winter.

    Cheers,

    Thanks BD. I'll probably skip the winter rest this year, as I don't expect any flowers soon. I hope they'll bloom next year. As for the paph, it was a little bit dehydrated, as you can see in the picture, the leaves were a little limp. It recovered now and I've seen another new groth on it. I think, by the colour and shape of the leaves, that it is a cool growing hybrid (a bulldog type???).

    You are welcomed! And I am not sure that it is a bulldog type paph by looking at the leaves. Maybe someone else can help you with that.

    Thanks again Bruce. It doesn't really matter to me what kind of paph it is, I like it so much, just wanted to know it's cultural requirements (warm or cool grower). I've read on the web, and on this forum, that paphs with mottled foliage like warm temps, and the other ones love cooler temps. So I guess I'll keep mine a little cooler than phals.

    Generally that is correct but there are paphs that do not have mottled leaves but are warm growers. For example Paph Philippinense (species) - these have all green leaves and not mottled but are grown here in the tropics where we have extremely warm weather. So knowing the particular paph you have would be helpful.

    Yes, I know Jojo, but here in Romania 99% of the orchids imported come with a tag that says just "phalaenopsis" or "paphiopedilum", or even "orchid mix"!!! That's very frustrating because you can't be sure what care to give to an orchid that has a tag saying "orchid mix"! Anyways, the tag it came whith had a picture that looked exactly like this one.

    If the tag photo is correct, then it is a bulldog type. A very pretty one with great color too.

    Yes, I'm hoping the tag is correct. I've placed it 3 feet from my southeastern window, no direct sunlight, and the temperature is 75 degrees. It seems to like it, as it grew about half an inch since i got it (5 days ago). I'll keep you updated on it's evolution.
