Does anyone know what this orchid is? I have no tag and no idea! I don’t have any orchids that look even close to this. The closest is den. chocolate Chip. I can’t seem to bloom dens so I don’t usually buy them.

Any ideas?

Sure looks like a dendrobium. Kingianum perhaps?

You ARE fast!! If it is I must have bought it in a fog. I can’t bloom the dang things. What are those little nubs?

The little nubs are where you would get flowers - or keikis. With Dens generally, more light might help. Also, these may benefit from a drier (but not bone-dry) winter rest, perhaps a bit on the cool side.

Higher light would be the first thing I'd think of. Possibly somewhat drier, but I'd put light at the top of the list... grow with the Catts might do it if they aren't there already.

This Den tolerates temps from 28F to 120F.
  • Water & fertilize regularly, do not let it dry out from March through Oct 15th.
  • It can go outside into near or full sun as soon as last frost is done.
  • It can stay outside till first frost is forecast.
  • Sept 15th: No more fertilizer till blooms open (or March).
  • Oct 15th: Only water once every 3-4 weeks.
  • Place it as bright & cool as you can till you see buds (usually in Jan or Feb).
  • Once you see buds, increase watering to every 10 days or so.
  • Once flowers open, resume full watering & start fertilizing.
