Den aggregatum - the person I got it from, in bud, said that she hadn't watered it at all for 2 months and thought it was dead. It was behind a pantry door!
It grew 3 big fat beautiful bulbs over the season. I'm going to treat it like the Aussie den and spritz maybe 2x per month. Both are in humidity of 50%. Both were outdoors in temps reaching 35-40f. So, according to various experts, both are set to bloom. Its just that nobody I know has bloomed the Aussie den and only a few have rebloomed an aggregatum.

If it bloomed under those conditions than you will likely get it to bloom with the same conditions. It is not too late for it to bloom. Mine usually bloomed in March. Good luck!

Plants don't need fertilizer when they're not growing, so there's no need to fertilize. For most orchids winter fertilizer is not helpful.

Which Aussie Dendrobium won't bloom?
