This hybrid dendrobium from Lowes was flowering from the newest stalk when we got it three years ago. This year it put out a rather lame flower stalk from last years growth. Is it likely to flower again this season when the newest growth matures?

Den phal hybrids usually flower on complete or near complete mature growths. Each leaf node has one dormant meristem that may become an inflorescence or a keiki. If conditions aren't correct they may not flower for a while, then flower prodigiously from older stems that didn't previously flower. The best answer to your question is, nobody knows.

Mine are blooming now. These two pots are divisions of the same plant and have been growing on my deck since I got them about 7 yrs ago. You might need to zoom in to see all the spikes. This year it 8s blooming from last year's canes as well as the new growths. It seems to be happy. Grown with full sun from about noon till the sun goes behind the neighbor's house about 5pm, under a 50% shade cloth.

Hey, e.s., as usual your advice is right on. This was the answer my question. You said:
"If conditions aren't correct they may not flower for a while, then flower prodigiously from older stems that didn't previously flower."
I have two identical plants. They were moved to my new greenhouse this year, and seem to be very happy about it. One produced a nice spike from last year's growth, the other, the one pictured, put out a small inflorescence from a growth with two previous spike stubs. The new growths from both plants are still maturing. Just now I looked, and see that one of them has a second spike coming in from the new growth.

What I learned is that I should hang on and wait. These plants are just getting started.

Nice. I never liked the cane-type dendrobiums but my wife loves them. Now that I'm growing them I'm starting to like them. Because two of my dendrobiums have identical flowers I was going to sell the one pictured b/c it had only 3-4 flowers despite growing like a weed. Bottom line, I was jumping the gun. They're both going to flower from the new growths too.
