    Default The prettiest Dendrobium cane I've ever seen

    I have to brag a bit on this one. It's just a beautiful, huge new growth - not a blemish on it, perfectly symmetrical and very robust (about 1 foot across, leaf to leaf). I hope the flowers it rewards me with (it BETTER.) are just as beautiful!

    That is as fat and happy a dendro as I've ever seen, as well.

    I too enjoy watching the dendrobiums grow new pbulbs. The leaves are soft and blemish free, while the pbulbs get taller and fatter. Your's will surely give you lovely flowers soon...it looks very healthy and happy.

    Thanks all!

    I wish the pseudobulbs stayed like this. It's always sad to see them so pristine as new growths and then watch them slowly shed their skin, shrivel and become lanky over time.
