What kind of Dendrobium? Male
Default What kind of Dendrobium?

Got these as a throw away last November, with no ID. I know that they are dendrobiums, but what kind? The first one has big fat nodes at the top of the cane and thin nodes at the bottom of the cane. Has not bloomed yet, the second one has thin canes all the way up the plant. It has bloomed last January. It only had one bloom but looks as if it should have had several blooms on the spike. Would like to know if they need a winter rest or when they may bloom. Any help is appreciated

First one looks like a nobile type; second one a kingianum hybrid. Nobile types generally want a rest, and in my experience kingis do not, tho others will no doubt disagree with me The species kingianum DOES want cooler night types to initiate spikes, and needs less water in the cool weather - hybrids, might depend

Agree with the above. The second is a hybrid of Australian plants. They should get dry between light waterings, but not for too long. They are very susceptible to spider mites when the air is dry.
It's a dry heat.
