Thanks! I agree--that is one of the great things about this plant. It's in a very sunny window that gets pretty cold in the winter, and those seem to be just the right conditions for it. I put it...

Thanks--I will give the cane another year and see if it produces any more flowers, and then will eventually cut it back. I wish I had a good place to hang the plant; they look really cool that way....

Hi--I just checked carefully and no mites (thank goodness!). The white areas are mostly long and streaky, almost like the leaves are variegated.

Thanks--I'm having a hard time finding just the right amount of light for these guys! Will try to shade them a little and see what happens. They grow so slowly I may not know for a long time!

white streaks on encyclia leaves

Hi,

I'm wondering what's causing the leaves of my Encyclia radiata to lose color. Have any of you ever had this happen to your orchid leaves? I can't find anything about white leaves online. Could...

Basal keikis or canes on Dendrobium nobile?

Hi folks,

My Dendrobium has three new growths, and two of them are growing from the sides of older canes, near the bottom. Can anyone tell me if these are keikis? I'm not sure what I should do...
