This little bugger won't break dormancy. Anyone have any ideas to kick start it?
Patience works quite well most of the time.
Sigh..... I'm trying but I am starting to wonder. (Ok - so every so often I do need to be reminded!) We got this at WOC with leaves and in full bloom. I can't help but think it should have done _something_ by now.
For a dollar or less, you could get the culture sheet for this species at http://www.orchidculture.com. It would let you understand exactly what the plant needs and when the bloom time can occur. It will be a dollar well spent. Way cheaper than rotting off the new growth by watering it too early.
Duh... now why didn't I think of that! Thanks for jogging my memory!
Ok - double duh - don't I fee a fool! It finally dawned on me that I have the Baker Dendrobium book! :bang:
Marni - your advice about patience is right on the money for this species. Thanks!
You obviously arent using your baker book so I suggest you send it on down to me.
You're welcome, always glad to be of help.
I do the same thing with species that go dormant!
Ya know, the books were packed away for so long that I forgot what we have.
