Thanks to Shawnchen's recent post, picked up this handsome dendrobium (potted with charcoal in claypot) at Toh's today and placed at the brightest spot. Plant is small, about 30cm and comes with several flowering spikes.
Was advised to fertilise 2 times a week and watered daily.
I wonder why this type of dendrobium is not so popular among members...is it hard to bloom in highrise apartments? I searched this forum for these dendrobium to no avail.
So, please share your tips. For the time being, I will be taking care of it like my phals.
Thanks

Two reason behind this
1)this is a high light orchid which can tolerate full sun which mout HDB dweller has difficulty provide
2) some some of thr hybrid can grow to 2m in length for thr pseudobulb, which most of us don't have the space for .it is a killer litter risk when u put along corridor .

What you got is Den. (Lee Siew Hua x canaliculatum). This is a miniature spatulata Dendrobium that will probably get to about one foot tall. I have this hybrid also and it is very robust, easy to grow and flower. Give it a lot of sun!

Thank you, now I know the name. This is a second successful re-bloom and has since put out another two more spikes.
