    Unhappy Dendribium Thong Chai Gold

    One of the 1st plants was the above. It was in spike and bloomed beautifully. I bought it last Feb. and it bloomed again in August. I developed new canes, and while some of the leaves yellowed and fell off i expected that. it was thriving until about a week ago. I had been keeping it pretty dry as I thought that was winter care but did water it with warm rain water about two weeks ago. Since then, the yellowing of all the canes except for two very young ones (small). Can you help me.? Also, what are the green spikes that develope on the tips of the bare canes?

    It is in a six in pot with coco bark and a few additives and has always done well in that. Now with all the leafless spikes I amwondering if that pot is too big.

    Please post a pic of your plant. We'll be better able to help if we can see what you're talking about.

    Yes, please post a photo. It is difficult to *guess* with only a description to go on. My first is that you have some sort of root problems, but post a photo and let us see how the plant looks before worrying.

    Cheers,

    I echo Ischel & Bruce's comments about it being much easier to give you our opinions if we can look at a photo. I wonder if the green tips on the bare canes are keikis (baby plants that are frequently found on Dends).

    Cheers,

    Rob
