I'm also surprised at the advice for dry winter rest, too. I took a look at the Baker Culture Sheet for the species, and it advises growing conditions all year just cutting back water a little if it...

Cute! I do like the high flower-to-plant ratio of the Den. microbulbon, and I have always loved Den. peguanum. Beautifully photographed, as always.

Watch for new growth... it will produce new roots. So don't worry if existing pseudobulbs shrivel a bit. Those are the reserves, to keep the plant going while it works on new growth and new roots....

I have found that Den kingianum does need some shading from summer mid-day sun. (I have toasted a few of those and the related Den speciosum) In winter it doesn't matter that much. But to save...

For those of us who live in areas that don't get winter frost (or at least very little), ES is spot-on. Mine don't get dried out, but the chill seems to work fine as a trigger for blooming. Den....

If it can generate enough "oomph" for a new growth it will make it. (the existing pseudobulb will not plump up most likely) The bark looks pretty large. These don't like to dry out, so you'll need...

General principal of repotting with new growth still holds, but Dracs seem to be growing most of the time, so I don't think that you need to wait.

These do tend to bloom as they are going dormant. So treat as a "going dormant plant"and reduce watering, no fertilizer.

I don't have this one. I have Ida ciliata. Took a few years, but has finally gotten to where it blooms fairly reliably. Don't know what finally made it happy though, other than time.
