Default Would like help to know what this orchid is

Hi,

New to the board and would like help to get an idea of what this orchid is. I'm thinking its a reed-stemmed epidendrum, but not exactly sure. It has not bloomed before so that makes it hard to give a specific idea but obviously I'm giving some sun outside. It has just started a new growth, still tiny.

Hey, welcome!

Your plant looks like a Dendrobium to me. Here is a link to some cultural information:

Good luck!

Welcome to the Orchid Board.

I agree, it's likely a Dendrobium related to Den. kingianum.

Thank you both for your input. I've had a number of dendrobiums over the years but for some reason it didn't occur to me for this to be one, but I agree with both of you. I felt I was giving this too much sun so moved it to a location where it gets a few hours of morning sun and shade in the afternoon. I'll keep a close eye on it, thanks again.

Dendrobium kingianum (and it's hybrids) do just fine in full sun - provided that you:
Water it copiously from spring through mid October.
Fertilize regularly from spring through mid September.

No fertilizer from 9/15 till you see blooms.
Reduce watering 90% from 10/15 till you see buds.
