    Hi Julie!

    I can help with part of your question: "noid" simply means No Identification. The orchid's tag is lost or missing.

    Cheers!

    Here are several pics of the Dend., 2 front view, one back. I labeled them so they should be self-explanatory. The entire plant is about 6 feet tall; the pics are just of the top of the relevant cane. When in bloom the spikes reach about another 4 feet, so this one's not for the typical windowsill.

    Julie, a keiki that has just developed roots can take several years before it's mature enough to bloom, though with excellent conditions, you can cut that time in half--so figure, as you said, about two years.

    Very cool pictures Louis - thanks for sharing! (Nice arrows!)

    I have a dend. keiki that has a keiki growing out of it. New digital camera should arrive this coming week. I'll snap some shots. It has some abnormal leaf growth though. I'm not sure if that's a keiki thing or not.

    I've never heard of a keiki off an inflorescence though. That's quite cool.

    That's a new one to me. I've had a couple of Dens (most recently a Den. Jaquelyn Thomas) do the opposite; put out a keiki and then bloom from the center of the keiki when the keiki is only about an inch long. Very silly.

    Regarding which will keiki from a spike, I have no idea if there's a rhyme or reason, but I can add one more to the list: Phaius . . . or Phaius tankervilla at the least. I don't think they'll ever do this on their own, but if you cut off the spike when it's done and plant it lying down on sphag, it will sometimes throw keikis. Oh – and also Calanthe. Calanthe pbs are very brittle and will snap in half very easily. If this happens, you can just half plant the thing on its side and it will keiki. But again; this doesn't happen in normal growth, as far as I know.

    LOL Julie! I got some cool 'stuff' for my B-day, but no new orchids. (No more room until summer time ) But hey, with the temps around here, summer might only be a month or so away.

    Cheers!

    Oh, BD...

    You're making me jealous: summer, a couple of months away? I've been shoveling snow all day, slip sliding down the road and topping off the humidifiers so my little darlings don't suffer from the 10% humidity common of MA winters!

    I've decided a winter vacation needs to include the entire family. I'll truck all my plants with me to a more tropical clime where they can lust after a life they're not destined to enjoy!

    Don't worry...Santa has registered your desire for a psycopsis. (A psycoptic desire??) His memory is long - keep the faith!

    Cheers back from the chilly northland,
    Julie
