Default Dendrobium 'Little Green Apples'



hmm okey little green apples ...nice hybrid flowers with the dendrobium parents of Den. Green Elf x Den. convolutum. Dendrobium Green Elf is a primary hybrid of Dendrobium convolutum x Dendrobium alexandrae. Double dose of convolutum in these. They are bloomers. This is the 3rd set of blooms this year on this plant. Its getting very large too by the way as canes are about 30" inches tall now and growing ...
Its grown in very high light very warm temps and it gets dry before I hose it down liberally. Gets the weakly weekly perfuming of peters cal mag and rain water when it pours. Mix is made of 3 cups orchiata 1 cup sponge rock and 1 cup charcoal. Im changing out the sponge rock to Dyna Rok as sponge rock stays too wet on the outside surface for my habits. Water collects between the rough surfaces of the sponge rock and I dont like that. Dyna Rok while moist isnt wet to the touch and I like the way it looks too...

Enjoy and thank you
