    Some photos of D.kingianum,best known and easiest to grow dendrobium,sets no problems.
    I/C grower minimum t° +2°C or 35,6°F,fairly dry winterrest,I give 2 months no water,until inflorescences appaer.
    Next flowering season,color change is possible,this one was originally purple.

    Nice one. I've always sucked at growing kings, but I've also always enjoyed them.

    Nice blooming! I froze my best kingianum to death last fall when I got too cocky about its ability to survive sub-freezing temps. :bang: I really like the fragrance of some of these.

    That sounds like unusual behaviour for this species. Are you sure there's only one plant in the pot?
