I can't seem to identify this orchid + can I divide it?
Default I can't seem to identify this orchid + can I divide it?

Hello everyone, I'm new here and would like to build a collection of orchids. I have a few already but I was wondering if I could grow some more from other plants that my parents own. I can't seem to find any tutorial on one particular plant, but maybe I'm just not looking hard enough.

I've attached photos of the plant - my guess is that I could take a sterilised knife and cut between the bulb and stem. They look like they may even break off.

Thanks!

My suggestion would be to harvest the whole cane and not to detach the keiki. I would carefully wrap a bit of sphag moss around the roots of the keiki and then plant the parent cane horizontal in a shallow pot or container covering it in fine bark with the keiki growing upward.

Research the Dendrobium orchid plant culture. It is quite forgiving and can stand some abuse, but don't push it. Your plant is dehydrated. Water it more. The keikis have long enough roots and you may twist it off from the mother and replant it.

Thank you for the info - that's really helpful. It's also good to know that about the watering because in all honesty, I usually just leave it (which is probably why it's like that).

I don't knnow how it works for you but I see a huge difference betweeen taking the keiki off and harvestinng the whole cane and planting that with the keii attached.

For me, a keiki on its own is very slow going and takes a long time to get going.

When Den keikis have that many roots, mine usually take off and grow rather quickly by using the usual twisting off method. Like my Phal keikis, I keep them in warm, humid and not too bright conditions until they're nicely settled into their pots. Though I have to say that I have never tried separating a Den keiki so late in the year.

I actually searched for this on YouTube and they give very nice instructions there with tips on how to disinfect and so forth. Type in " removing dendrobium Keiki" in YouTube and you will see. Good luck !

Hi PeteB, Welcome to the Orchid Board!

There are many different kinds of Dendrobiums, requiring different kinds of care. You have a Dendrobium nobile type. If you search Orchid Board on Den. nobile or just nobile you will find out more about this kind of plant. The search feature is in the top maroon bar.
