PURPLE DENDROBIUM : BLOSSOM AGAIN

This is one of my orchid collection.
I have no expectation to this orchid.
This Dendrobium is my old collection.
The last blossom was five years ago.
Actually, I have forgotten that I collected this orchid in my garden.
Three weeks ago, when I was tidying up my back yard, I found a spike with three flower buds on it.
I found the verticulture rack that full of poor orchids.



This is the buds in March 21.


Two days ago, March 23.


Today...







I hope this orchid will bloom longer, and safe from the rain and wind.

  2. It's stunning, what a beautiful surprise. How lovely to be able to grow orchids outside. I love your verticulture rack, a really pretty way to display things.

    1. A forgotten collection. My husband bought it about six years ago. This orchid had a good performance at the early first year, than the growth got stagnancy. This orchid escaped my notice. That's my oldest verticulture rack, more than twelve years old. Thsnk you for stopping by.

  5. Lovely Dendrobium flowers!
    I have a Dendrobium kingianum – it has never flowered, not sure why but I think it isn’t enough light in my kitchen for it, and possibly not warm enough. I can’t do anything about either of these things so I just enjoy its green leaves. It looks healthy enough, it just doesn’t flower.

    1. Dendrobium is a sunshine lover. This orchid like warm place, evenly grows so well on the heat place. I put most of my Dendrobiums on the wall, to get more sunshine also warmer temperature. Maybe you can take your orchid out on the warm day to stimulate the flowering period

  8. I never had one that blooms again. I think the climate is not right in Brittany. Yours has a beautiful colour and the shape of orchids is always so amazing.

    1. Thank you Magali. To make our orchids rebloom again is not easy, they need a good microclimate. I think I just a lucky gardener
