Can you please let me know what dendrobiums are these plants?
And this one used to have little white flowers attached on the cane.
Michalisz, it is a well grown and beautiful flower what ever it is. It is most likely a hybrid and I don't know what it's name is. Look at this post and you will see similarities in the flower structure http://www.orchidsforum.com/threads/dendrobium-bigibbum.12402/#post-89639 so it probably has Dend bigibbum in the parentage somewhere. As for the second plant, ??? Hopefully someone can give you a better answer.
The second one looks like the type of Dendrobium nobile hybrid you can find everywhere in full bloom during spring. You might find and ID in this photo gallery. http://www.yamamotodendrobiums.com/html/wholesale_plants.html
The nobile type will do better if you keep it a bit drier and cooler in the winter.
Thx to all. Got them from ikea.
It look the same mr kelly. One lady told me that is a dancing lady. I dont think so
"Dancing lady" is a common name often applied to Oncidium because the flower shape resembles a woman in a full skirt. Your plant is not an Oncidium and is definitely a Dendrobium.
Here is a classic Dancing Lady (Oncidium hybrid) bloom:
Lol. Yes it looks like a dancing lady. Actually i have one oncidium like this. I ll post it 2mrow.
The growth pattern of the Dendrobium is absolutely bizarre and seems to indicate that the dominant bud that should have started the new season's growth is dead. As a result the vegetative buds higher up in the stem were stimulated to grow. They show signs of being grown in light levels that are too low to produce robust growth, they look spindly and weak. Also, if the roots have died the plant can produce several keikis on the stem, be alert for the appareance of roots around the base of the new growths, this is normally a sign of damage to the main root system.
So you think its better to move it in a location with brighter lighting?
I left it there cause i thought it was going well and new leaves started to show.
Yes I would move it to brighter light but not direct sunlight. This plant has been growing using its reserves so it is weakened. So accostum it gently to brighter light to avoid any burn. Also, autumn is a poor time for a plant to produce new growths, they are usually produced at the end of winter or early spring. My recommendation is to keep it warn to avoid losing the new growths. Next year, by this date you should be preparing to stop watering and feeding it, because these plants go into a rest period during the winter.
Thx a lot.I will move it in my orchidarium in a few days.
So for now i wil keep watering it as i used to or do i have to change that?
Keep watering the plant until the canes stop growing. When that happens reduce watering and fertilizer until you see new buds growing from the base of this years canes. Hopefully in time the plant will adapt its growing schedule to your local seasonal variations.
Thx a lot. I moved in my orchidarium with 2 t5 hagen glo light. Its not ready yet but it will get a little more light there.
Thx again. Got a lot to learn
Dendrobium nobile hybrids are not that difficult to grow, but a bit tricky to bloom. My favorite, Den. Red Emperor, produces such nice flowers that I am happy if it only produces a few. The Internet is full of information on culturing these orchids.
