    Default Plum tree dens

    I have gone ape mounting things for the past few months, these are the first victims,...ahh, I mean volunteers...patients?? Anywho, I hung all the dens I had at the time in my plum tree in the back yard. Right now the yard looks like a jungle but got mowed a week ago. K, back to what I was talking about.

    The dendrobiums look to be doing very well indeed. The tree and the yard must seem like home to them! Lol.

    You give frequent fertilizer and maintain watering schedule the plant will grow amazingly by the way yours is hard cane dendrobium definitely need more lighy at least 70% if you give extra definitely they will appreciate it.

    Well, thanks for the comments. Later on in the year the leaves will fall off the tree and it may or may not put out a second set of plums, the rainy season should be going on by then. So the dens would be getting a bit more sun under there. To be honest the dry season has been all but dry, we've had rain almost every week which is quite unusual, normally there are bush and cane fires and everything would be dry and brown. I'm a little worried about when the wet season comes what the weather will be like.

    Love your back yard very nice this is like a 5 star hotel for them a least for now, lots of new growth. Regarding rain I thought you were talking about Florida we've also gotten a lot of rain this past month and the rainy season is just getting started. Good luck.
