Dendrobium budding

This hyprid, No-ID Dendrobium nobile is making nice buds. I wasn't sure if they would turn out to be keikis or flowers. Now it appears they will be flowers.

Pretty exciting, for me. This is my first re-blooming of a dendrobium. It's friend is also making buds, but not as many.

I sat them outside for a couple of hors today, to get more sun. It was overcast and 60s or 70s so perfect for an orchid outing.


  1. Nice! Never got Dendrobiums to do much, but our Phalaenopsis are foolproof.

    Is the background photo for your blog heading from that crazy frost we had on Christmas Day this past year? I have a bunch of shots just like that from our garden.

  2. Thanks for the comment.

    The background was some time this winter. I need to change to something more in keeping with the season!
