It seems healthy with a new sprout. I also have a Phalaenopsis that reblooms often. Any information to help it rebloom is helpful. Thank you.
    By the pics you posted it seems that the leaves are dark green that in this type of Dend means lack of light. It will grow very nicely but will not bloom. Give it more light, hold the fertilizer and expect to see some spikes!

    I agree dendrobiums do need more light to bloom.
