    Default Please help me identify this dendrobium

    Hi!

    I had just bought 4 dendrobium earlier today, I had found out one of the name of the dendrobium from a thread in this forum. That is the dendrobium anosmum var hutonii ( I do not include its picture). However, I am perplexed with the other dendrobium that I had bought. If it is possible I would like your help in the identification of these dendrobiums. There are three different dendrobiums that I had attached in the picture.
    For the picture with 2 keikis that I had put in a water bottle, it actually comes from a huge plant with at least 33" cane. The leaves is almost yellow. Is it possible to know why is the leaves turned to yellow? Is it because it is shedding its leaves? Or is the yellowing of the leaves has anything to do with lighting that it receives.

    I hope to know if these three dendrobium need a rest period or not based on the type. This is because I had read in a forum about a Dendrobium glomeratum which has almost the same leaves as the dendrobiums that I had bought which is said to not need a rest period in its growth.

    Thanks a lot!!

    Without a flower I don't think they can be identified.

    Hi!

    I am sorry to post such a question, I do not know that it is not possible to identify an orchid without its flower. I will look for the mother plant and take the picture of the flower if possible.

    Thanks!

    I know this is answering a bit later, but they all look like anosmums to me. Without the flower you cant be totally sure but anosmum has a particular growth habit. Yellowing could be dormancy or it could be improper feeding. If it's the time of year for a rest (going into winter) then it's probably dormancy, if it's any other time of year you may need to look at what/how much/how often you fertilize your orchids.
