    Default Dendrobium Densiflorum spike ?

    I got this Den. Densiflorum last year and it has 5 canes but only one has 3 leaves in it. Since then it has lost a leaf and no activity going in it for months, I thought it was dying so I thought of repotting it so I could check it if the roots are still healthy, still nothing but a couple of months ago two of the canes started to swell, I thought at last, a new leaf but the "growth" continued to swell and today it looks like this....a spike perhaps????

    Hi guys. This had finally opened some days ago and had posted the picture in the catts, vandas and dens category. The flowers lasted just about 4 days in perfection though and now it is finished. But was a great show though so I look forward to next year. Thanks guys......carl
