What do you think???

It looks fine. I'm trying to wait till the show coming up to save on shipping. And after seeing everyone's plants I having a real hard time not ordering.

Although I was not arround when this project was getting under way I would like to join this one. The place I bought my summer project plant from has this listed and they say it is blooming size and it's a reasonable price.

It's also mounted and I quite like the idea of trying a second mounted plant (the first was the Milt spectabilis from the summer project).

OK, so my plant is ordered. All being well I should get it next week

It says it's mounted so that will be my second mounted orchid. I also got Phalaenopsis bellina and Masdevallia amabilis as travelling companions.

Hi Rosie , I already had one that I got FOC with the sumer Project plant (it was one of my TC's but I guess being a returning customer he decided to not charge me)..anyway, I look forward to reading how you all get along with this because mine is 'growing' but not flourishing... (I am testing a v.different set up as up to this only had one other (Dend hybrid)
You will Love the bellina ! just watch the roots better to leave a bit drier for an extra couple of days than water (in my experience as nearly lost mine) .. Massies is another one I have not yet tried...

Thanks Nenella, I tend to underwater my Phals anyway so hopefully the bellina will like that. I got a Masdie as a TC for the summer project plant and it's growing well and looks healthy even though I've not got it to flower yet. I decided to try a second even though I'm still not totally sure about them.

As for the Den... well I have some Den phal hybrids and in March I got a Den Stardust (which is a nobile type hybrid). I think that this could be quite different to those, and it will be all new to me to grow a mounted Den. Here's hopeing I can keep it alive

Hi All,
In terms of watering your Den. loddigesii, are you letting it dry?? Mine is mounted with no moss on the roots, so I have been spraying each morning, and often in the afternoon if the cork mount looks dry. I have also purchased a simple humidity dome to try to keep all the roots more humid through the day. I cannot say I have seen any real signs of growth yet, but It think that some of the roots are looking much more plump and green. According to what I could find in a quick search on the net this group of Dendrobiums experiences fairly high humidity and plentiful rain in the summer. So again, how are you approaching your watering of this interesting plant, so glad I joined this group.
Cheers,
Stephen

I haven't gotten mine yet but I intend on watering it daily in the morning unless it rains. Andy's say's to water 3 to 5 times a week and let dry slightly between watering. I want a mounted plant and they dry out fast down here.

I'm still waiting for mine as well, but I was planning to water it the same way as my mounted miltonia (from the summer project).

I water that daily except for the odd day I forget. It probably gets arround 5 days a week watering at least. I don't just spray it to water it, I dunk the entire thing (mount and all) in the sink for 10min or so. I will have to work out once I see what this one is like exactly how I will do that, but with the Milt I just leave it in the sink while I'm getting dressed in the morning then pull it out before I go downstairs. Seems to work really well for that.

My Den arrived today

It's potted not mounted which I'm a little disapointed about, as it has said mounted on the website. It's also a little pale and VERY dry, but I've watered it and sat it in a shaded window.

It seems to have two tiny keikis and also has one lone flower bud... maybe I will be the first to get flowers... although there is some damage on the bud so we shall have to see.

I'm at work now (it was delivered to work) so I will get some pics posted later today.
