    Default Dendrobium Wodonga Salmon x Gillian Leaney

    Bought this a few months ago but the only cultral info i got with it was "10c min , drier in the winter & damp in the summer".
    Canes are only about 2 1/2" high & there is about 20+ canes in a 2 1/2" pot.I,ve just noticed new roots & new canes starting.
    Any cultral tips ?
    Do i treat it like Den Kingianum ?

    Well, that plant is getting on towards a pretty complex cross of the ozzie species. D kingianum is in that cross a few times, with the addition of D speciosum, D fleckerii, D jonesii. Anyways, I find all those bar the fleckerii need a fair amount of light, short of leaf burn. The growths start late spring and should grow pretty quickly and you may then get a second set of growth.

    The thing is, for the plant to flower, the new p/b needs to harden off. This is where the light levels come into play. Flowering should occur in spring. As far as temps go, again, all the above species are pretty forgiving. I've had mine close to zero during winter. As long as they are kept on the dry side they should be ok.

    Is that size 2 1/2 inch??? That is like tiny. That sounds like it is greatly influenced by the kingi.. but with the addition of the speciosum and jonesii, I would have thought it would be taller. Aaah well, more space for more plants. Oh and the old p/bs will keep flowering year after year, generally until the leaves fall off.

    and apologies for rabitting on and on, but I do love our natives

    Thanks m8.
    Great info.
    A bit to late togive it some cool treatmnt this year so i,ll just concentrate on getting the plant growing strong.I thought it might need a cool/dry period but i didn,t wont to kill poor little tyke.Have got a D speciosum & a D.falcorostrum on the way so i,ll be probably picking your brains for more info.
    The plant was in a 2 1/2" pot when i got it so the size of the plant may have been stunted somewhat.It,s been in s/h for a month or so , i noticed alot of new roots & took the oppurtunity to change the medium(& a slightly bigger pot).I,ll have to see how big the new gowth gets.
