    it might be a Dendrobium anosmum, indeed.
    Every thing is O. K.
    Wait for the flower.

    it does look like anosmum, but wait for the flowers just to be sure. you did the right thing
    mounting it that way as it gets long with every growth. Give it lots of water and ferts
    come december-january stop watering it, it should bloom around march-april.

    thanks for the info delphi.

    im watering it everyday early in the morning and feeding it with a general purpose fert every week at half the dosage. or should i change to bloom booster?

    would it not be killed if i stop watering for 2 months?

    No, it won't die, it needs a rest in winter without water to bloom. If it is indeed D. anosmum it will lose its leaves in winter too. The blooms will appear on the bare cains. Good luck!

    I cant comment much on ferts as im not really fertilizing my plants regularly
    and when I do I use organic ferts a combo of Fish/Seaweed/guano smelly
    stuff tho. Not 2 months, more like 3-4 months no water or until it blooms,
    you can start to withheld watering from December or January so that by
    summer March-April you'll see blooms otherwise if you keep watering it, it will
    form keiki instead of flowers. They're decidious so they require a break from
    watering, in our forest they dont get any rains during the summer season.
    And dont worry it wont die, by the time you have stopped watering it, it has already
    stored a huge reserve of water for itself in those fat juicy canes. The leaves will
    fall off but dont be alarmed its just natural and it will bloom on those leafless canes.

    Do Dendrobium anosmum seedlings (like 5 growths of 3-4") require the same rest,or any rest since they don't have the reserves of a larger plant?

    thanks for the info tmai and delphi

    what about the keikis that i have already separated like what etex are asking, do they also need a rest in watering on that period (December - April) and also this blooming period applies also to some other areas in general or only in philippines?
