I got this very nice Den from the Pacific Orchid Expo early this 2012..got smitten by its bottlebrush looking blooms. After a month or so the blooms have finally declined. Now we chanced upon this small greenhouse called a Growcamp that fits nicely in our small yard, after setting it up, most of my orchids went there. One of the greatest improvements in growth came from the Den smilliae, out of one of the bare canes, it started to start making a new bud! I now really understand what it means when they say the Dens love lots of light and air circulation
First photo is how it looked like in January..and next photos are the new buds as it continues to grow..the waiting game!!!
