    Default Dendrobium thyrsiflorum has a bud!

    I have a handful of Dens that I got with the collection I was given. Some are NOID, all were dehydrated to some degree. I have not worried about winter rests since I don't know what some of them are and they needed some TLC rather than worry about getting them to bloom. This thyrsiflorum is large and in pretty good shape but has very few roots. I put it in a tiny clay pot and water it about once a week. I have not been using any fertilizer. I'm doing this with all of them.

    To my great surprise they are all forming spikes, and most exciting is this bud on the thyrsiflorum which I just noticed a few days ago.

    I'm glad their all spiking for you Karin. However it had not been that long since I last watered them. Like say less than a week. Of course its so much cheaper to pay retail plus long distance shipping for the orchids.............................

    Dehydration is not necessarily related to frequency of watering. I wasn't complaining just thought the experience may help others learn about dens. I have certainly learned a lot. Hope you are doing well.

    Only nine days since the first photo. It is really progressing. I didn't think I would see much happening for months.
