Dendrobium tranuanii

Darlene (GreenCurls)(6a)April 24, 2013

This is a first time bloomer. There are two more buds that appear to be forming on the blooming cane. But I wanted to post this first bloom just in case I am wrong about the other buds.

It is a rather glossy flower with a slightly spicy scent.

Mine is blooming right now as well - 2 flowers, but I broke one moving the plant. I don't notice any smell at all , though.

Lovely little plant!

Tucker, yours very nice also. Thank you for sharing.

The fragrance is pretty light but definitely there in mine. It is most obvious in the morning. I like the spiciness of the fragrance.

They are so pretty. How do you grow them?

I am growing mine in a southern window in intermediate temperatures. Over the winter, I let it dry significantly between waterings. Now that the new growth is showing, I am increasing watering. I am still letting it dry between but not letting it stay dry as long.

Tucker - What about you?

Pretty much the same - potted in a small clay pot in NZ sphagnum, bright light, more water now that it's growing, a little fertilizer, but very weak.
