Yes,Cordelia is a welcome face and good to know she's still part of J&L. The website has changed nicely but their plants have always been exceptional,as long as one is into what they grow and how they grow them. Plz post fotos when yours bloom!

I had to update this post, I’m very surprised!

The Dendrobium cuthbertsonii Pink Giant x Bicolor has grown well for me, much to my surprise. I was hesitant to purchase this plant yet Cordelia convinced me to try one. My grow area for this one is an indoor greenhouse with daytime temps around 80 to 85, my big concern when attempting to grow a cuthbertsonii. The temps are 60 to 65 at night and I have a fan running on the shelf beneath this plant to help cool it some.

I repotted the cuthbertsonii from its small plastic pot into a larger bonsai style pot using moss. The plant really took off and has grown quite a lot. I have it sitting 4” below the T5 HO bulb.

The surprise? I found two nice buds!!! The cuthbertsonii is going to bloom soon and I am actually dumbfounded! Cordelia would be proud of me, lol. I hope there will be more buds develop but I’m pleased with the two. Here are a few pictures of cuthbertsonii:

In the first two pictures the buds are at center.
