    Exclamation LISTING:Blooming keiki from Dend 'Pixie Princess' (1 keiki)

    New Listing on OrchidBids: I have a well-established keiki growing and blooming off the side of a p-bulb on my mini Dendrobium 'Pixie Princess'. It has 4+ well-established roots and has a lovely spike that is currently in bloom. I would keep this keiki on the plant usually, however, since its chosen to grow at an angle, its making my plant off-balance and it falls over! I would prefer to trade this keiki for another minature orchid, and in particular, I would LOVE a Dendrobium 'Atroviolacium' if anyone has one :-) Please see pictures below, and feel free to contact me or PM me with any questions!

    I love reading the posts and looking at your pictures. Seeing the color of the roots of your den makes me feel better about my babies. I have two new little ones, both of the same variety....i'm thinking the seller wanted to make sure you could at least get one to maturity. lol Mine are Betty Gotto's. It'll be a heck of a wait to see them bloom, but they are doing well so far and I'm patient.

    Haha, were you concerned about your dend's root color? I've honestly found that roots of these silly plants can be ALL different colors- I think mine are this color because they're exposed to the air frequently, although I do mist them a lot as well...
