    Default Dendrobium speciosum var paucifolium

    Hello all,
    As you may have guessed from all the threads of mine in bud, its getting close to BLOOMING SEASON!

    This one is going to be a rather spectacular specimen, with 7 spikes (now 6, one got knocked off....) each with around 50 buds on each. Thanks TedNZ (Ted), ive kept it well! and i took a piece of it to make room in the basket, so i have two now

    Dendrobium speciosum var pedunculatum (please correct me Ted if i am wrong.)

    That's looking good I had not flowered it before, the var is pedunculatum a freind of mine had a flask and also not flowered one.My grandiflora has 20 spikes so am hoping for no hard frosts. I hope we will see a good photo of the plant when it is fully out.

    There are going to be lots of blooms on that dendrobium orchid, Jordan. I look forward to seeing the blooms.

    A simple formula for success Jordan. Have a big plant, add in health and vigorous growth, add multiple spikes with many blooms, and you will end up with something beautiful. This is not just theory either, but proven fact. AL
