Dendrobium Phalaenopsis

Update from my balcony garden: the Dendrobium Phalaenopsis variety of orchid has bloomed. The stick is two weeks old, three have bloomed, three still in their ‘bud’ stage. I decided not to cut the stick. I want to see how long the plant holds the flowers fresh. Once cut they last for just a month in a vase before it wilts away.

I love these orchids. Have a friend in California who has such a green thumb, that she has them blooming all over.
