    It gets yearly water, but a little less in winter. I keep no medium on the mount and it enjoys drying out quickly after watering. It's hanging on the west side of the greenhouse without shade cloth all year and gets summer day temps 75-78 and nights 55-60F. Winter day temps 65-70F and nights 50F. Water with RO and fertilize at every feeding at 25 - 30 ppm

    Incredibly grown! I think this species is a good example of PNG Dendrobiums that can tolerate intermediate-warm conditions but grow best cool/cold. I have five plants of this, they all grow great but never bloom.

    Its a nice clone, very blue! May I ask if it has a clonal name, or if you know its origin? I have two clones that normally bloom a bit later in the spring, and if yours isn't of the same origin as mines, I'd be very tempted to beg for some pollen :)

    Chuck very nice! Let me know if you need pollen too. I have another smaller plant from a different clone that flowers at a different time to this one and is a similar color to yours. Ill be saving pollen from this one, because I've already tried twice self pollination and the species does not for me. I prefer out cross anyway.

    Thank you! my biggest plant comes from USA (gift from Bob Hamilton & John Leather), and its clonal name is "Ligia". The other plant I have is a seedling from L&R (Russel Hutton).

    Okay I originally got a cutting from Ron Parsons and he just confirmed it as "Ligia". Looks like we have the same clone.

    Hi Mikhail, I just checked my plants. The light blue one was originally a seedling from Mountain Orchids (Darrin Norton). I also have ‘Ligia’ in bud and a small division of ‘J+L’ which I haven’t bloomed yet. I will collect some pollen in the next couple days.
