Anyone has experience with growing dendrobium seedlings? I'm in a dilemma whether to order dendrobium seedlings. If it takes too long I will skip buying..

It completely depends on the ancestry. Which ones are you thinking about? How big are they? Some might take 2 years and others 10 years. Most are closer to 2.

Oh I see, the one I'm looking for is frosty snow.
Dendrobium Frosty Dawn – OLYMPIC ORCHIDS.

It's considered in the nigrohirsute or Formosum Section. With good care it would probably flower in 2-4 years, depending on how big it is now.

If you get it, watch carefully for spider mites. Den. seedlings are highly susceptible to this pest and can be killed quickly.

Thanks estación for the heads up. I really dont want to invest in buying seedling if the chances for it to survive are low. I've never had a dendrobium and would like to own one. I have never seen them sold in the stores around here.

A suggestion... The best place to see a variety of orchids far beyond what you will see in a store is a show. Since show season is pretty much over, you also might check out Northwest Orchid Society Home - Northwest Orchid Society .. and meet other orchid lovers. Clubs often have raffle tables or sales of divisions from other members for very modest prices, and are a great place to see what others in your area grow... and you will very likely end up with some orchids "following you home".

Large Dens are also susceptible to spider mites. Dealing with them is part of growing plants.

I not only own a cousin (Dendr Green Lantern) but I've bought several times from Olympic Orchids and I'm gonna make an educated guess of 2-3 years with good culture to flower.
I would encourage you to purchase it. It's low cost and not hard to grow on. It is not likely to die unless you can't grow dendrobiums.

Mine was just now moved to take it's floral photo. Fresh!

Yes, all plants can have spider mites. Everybody deals with them; some more than others. The Dens I've bought from Olympic are healthy, but you must watch all seedlings for spider mites.

Den. phal hybrids may be even easier for some people to grow, so consider them as well.
