    IMG_6618.jpeg is found in Sulawesi, Celebes and Papua New Guinea at elevations of 600 to 2600 meters as a mini-miniature sized, warm to cold growing epiphyte... This is a first bloom seedling from a trade on this site... Very tiny flower and plant... I finally figured out how to grow PNG Dendrobiums!!!

    Well, how do you grow it?! Because I have several plants and no blooms.

    Hi Raven... This is a seedling I got from you... 48F low... 85F high... 50%+ humidity and good air movement... I found having higher humidity has helped many plants that I'm interested in growing...

    How frequently do you water it Dexter? It looks like you have a nice amount of moss growing there.
    I just can't seem to get mine to be happy. I recently moved it to the wine cooler and am hoping the colder nights work better.

    Hi Alex... I probably over water... I spray down the greenhouse if the moss is dry on the mounts... Then the plants in pots usually get too much water... It's hard to keep all the plants happy... The mounted plants in the greenhouse seem to be very happy though...

    It certainly looks like it's working for this one!
