    I have a type of Dendrobium orchid that propagates by shooting roots out of the plant stem and then falls off. I have about 10 of these new growths. The parent orchid has produced many of these small orchids. I am trying to find a home for them. If you would like one or know of anyone who would like one then please let me know. I will give them away on a first come first serve basis. I wish I could better describe the orchid.

    thank you,

    T

    move your thread to the Orchidaceae above this one of the Bamboos and Grasses and you may get some hits!!?
    The dendrobium is prob. a nobile type.

    And to prevent it from forming Keikis instead of flowers (the dormant buds can become either..), keep it cooler (5-12ºC @ night & 15-25ºC daytime) and drier (just mist the exposed roots every 2-3 days & water only occasionally...canes should shrivel a little) with lots of light.

    Hi, I have just joined this forum and it looks like a lot of fun and a world of knowledge.
    How wonderful of you to offer the orchids. I would love to have one but you must teach me a thing or two for success as I have never raised an orchid before. Thanks, Dean

    How cool of you to offer those.

    I am very interested if I'm not too late.

    Just let me know what to do?

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi,

    If you would like an orchid then please feel free to email through this bulletin board. Please do so with your personal email or some other way of contacting you. If you would like one then you'll have to come by and pick one up. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to mail them. All you need to do is be able to pick one up.

    thanks

    Sure, I understand not mailing them. I would be happy to pick one up, only I am in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. and If I'm correct, Burnaby is near Vancuver? If so, I thank you anyway.

    There is no contact information...so no way of emailing you. I can not pick up but if you would be willing to mail to Pender I would be willing to mail you some plants in exchange.
