Dendrobium moniliforme Mangetsu
This little Dendrobium is growing in a 2" pot with fine bark mix. The moniliforme Dendrobiums are just starting out of winter rest, thus the bloom. It grows under 12-13 hours of bright light close to the t5 fluorescents (approx 2000 foot-candles) and 90% humidity.
We are Bluegreen Vacation Club owners that enjoy vacations in new areas and getting involved doing new activities. For Ross, this usually includes photography--especially local flora. For both of us, this includes sampling the local food and shopping. We are always looking for that perfect dessert as well as another hat or t-shirt or, perhaps, a candle or two.
