Ok, think the ppl above me gave enough instructions already.
ts, this orchid is a bit too advanced for you

Your location for this orchid or even the orchid next to it is all wrong.
You place your orchids at the base of the parapet wall most of the time?

Cheers

Eh furret the dendrobium finlaydianium is semi deciduous dendrobiums that gives blooms after its sheath it leaves.

Apparently what boonboon and chatbud and ETC.... Is pointing out that the dendrobium is suffering a soft rot I suspects as the rot have a tendency of causing the stem of the dendrobium to become soft and gives of a odor.

What you can do now is remove those soft rotten canes. do Heat up your pruning secateurs and remove them cleanly like give them a clean cut and dispose that rotten canes so it doesnt have a pandemic of orchids with soft rot.

Apply Contact fungicides for the time being and keep it on the dry side I believe it will grow well in no time just remember whenever the orchids is giving out new cane refrain from fertilising them until the cane is matured and well grown.

And there is no orchids that is hard for everyone to grow.

Follow these rules and you should be fine:

Read up on them before you purchase them some of these sellers have tendency to coerce selling their stock to the beginners. Or buy those that you had readup before and try to grow them.

Second also check their potting media in the sgf. Examples: Taiwan sellers has a good spending on potting their orchids with too much spaghmum moss which beginners didn't notice and therefore when they think watering of fully potted spaghmum moss daily will become the worst nightmare and funeral for your newly purchase orchids.

Third some orchids go for dormacy like charles darwin favourite castestum and ... when they sleep stop water only when they give you new growth again

Lastly look up for IOSPE.COM for more info generally is a website with full of info and also you also findout how is their in situ habitat, this will help you to mimic their mirco environment .....

Generally dendrobium are a good beginner sympodial plant look out for more to grow them


happy orchid growing

Guys! Great news!! The two cuttings I took(those without leaves) have keikis! But sadly, the one with leaves dried up and died of(it wasnt in a zip lock bag) the two sucessful cuttings were placed in plastic bags though... anyway, would like to have some advice on caring for the keikis and what is a suitable time to remove the whole cuttings from the bag.
Cheers!

once is slowly grown and the keikis has the grown into a young shoots. grow them in a pot of charcoal - advisable mix it with some bark or coconut chip

the ratios probably is 20 percent of coconut chip with mostly charcoal

it helps them to root fast and water everyday once is potted. Since the medium is very aerated
