Default Dendrobium cane fell off can i repot or what do I do?

I told you guys I had lots of questions but I am at that stage where I have a few orchids that have bloomed and now they are at the point where I need to figure out how to make them bloom again. Enough
question: It was really windy here this weekend and one of my dendrobium canes with leaves no flowers snapped so I cut it off.

what do i do now? Can I just put it back in the pot or should I cut off all the leaves and try to get it to grow somehow.. ??

Thanks in advance. I know stupid question but I am plead new orchid addict.

Default Hi Linnie

No questions are stupid!

Since no one answered you I hope you figured out by now what to do. If that cane had no roots it was a discard.

I believe my e-mail is available to all so you can e-mail me personnally with questions if you get no answers from this forum. I only joined very recently or I would have answered you.

Randy

Linnie...I am SO sorry about you never getting a response on this! I can't believe we all (except Randy ) missed it

What did you do with this den cane? Did it have roots?

Thanks guys, I had forgotten all about that email Well, I confess, it went to orchid heaven.. I tried laying it in spagnum for awhile, and misting it, but it never did anything..

And I am so brain dead these days, I can't remember if it had roots or not, but it is no longer with me now. And I found others to take it's place.. ..

Well Im glad you are still around. I have to confess I didn't respond to this one cause back in 2005 I could barely tell the difference between a Cattleya, Dendrobium, Phal, and Paph; much less help with this. Too bad for the loss, hope all your new orchids are doing better. I also hope Randy finds the time to come back as well.

That's what Dends do best, now it's time to fill that space with a nice Paph.

Linnie--in future, if you take the broken cane & lay it down on a bed of damp sphagnum it will form new plantlets from the nodes.Especially handy when it is a favourite that you can't find.

Yea, I think that Den was one of Tony's devil ones, because it never did anything for me. But if it ever happens, I will try again, because I DO like Den's. My first orchid was a dendrobium and it has been mistreated, fallen over at least 5 times, spilled out most of it medium , and it still blooms!! In fact, it has two spikes right now.. I can't kill that one if I try.. It's a noid but I don't hold that against it..
