i got this for $4 off an orchid store that was closing up. it was marked a Dend. "Honey White". i've trying forever searching for anything that remotely looks similar... but not any luck... it is an unbloomed cutting so i havent seen flowers

PS: the silver ruler is 16 cm (about 6")





all the dends i've seen in person or in photos either has a very thick and long cane or pseudobulb like ones, but none like this... the healthy cane is only pencil thick...

i know the old canes are all shriveled b/c all the old roots have rotted off (cut while repotting), but the 2 new leads are growing roots but they are taking forever!!! to grow... the rubber band is just loosely wrapped around to hold the cane in place while it grew roots

the dend's permanent is not on that windowsill. it resides in a due south window in a tub filled with water. of course the pot sits on stilts, haha. the temps are generally around the 20*C range for now. i've had it since June 2007

any ideas guys?

There are quite a few Dends that have a similar look. One that comes to mind is Dend farmeri. (fameri's canes always look furrowed and dessicated once they are beyond a year old)

What I would do it to use a rhizome clip and secure the plant. Most Dends like their roots tight, so I would use a much smaller pot, preferably clay for they like to well drained as well. I would keep it in the shade until new growth starts (you are not going to get new roots until you get new growth) I wouldn't bother watering it for without any viable roots, there is nothing to uptake the water. A humid environment would be good.

I checked to see if there was a Dend hybrid with that name but these were my only hits, so the 'Honey White' must be a clonal name or the grower wasn't sure and just marked down the flower color that way.

Here are Dends with Honey in the name

light: i'm pretty sure it gets enough, it sits infront of a due south window (which i need to shade otherwise even i'd fry). water, i think the vendor from before hand had a chronic habit of letting them dry a lot.

and i hope it will flower...

i repoted the dend to the tiniest clay pot possible, those 1.5-2" ones. but i do wanna hurt myself now, i dunno how in the world anything like this can happen, but i snapped off one of two new leads... it just halved on me right across the cane... the btm half with all the roots are still attached to the rest of the plant but the top half is a goner... ToT <<"nooooo!!!"

i see lots a new roots now exploding from everyplace now especially from the new leads and the one 3" root that came outta nowhere... i guess i just hafta give it some time, more roots = faster cane growth i hope.

thanks ron-NY, i still have no idea how to get results from the RHS, grr!! but at least u posted it, now i can google each individually

NUEric: ya, thanks. im aware of it ^^

Nick you would love this answer.
Just by chance I saw this one on the web (I was looking for the name of the vuyl. Aloha Passion for another post, what a surprise, I saw the photo of den Honey'White' on the same website) it looks like a hard cane dendrobium hybrid.
So it is just den. Honey with clone name 'White'

This is what called synchronicity theory, of how the universe runs.

for a very general appearence, maybe because itz a little shriveled, but looks more tapered than swollen towards the base, but thatz not conclusive. i guess i will know soon enough when the little one grows bigger. however, comparing pictures, the leaves of mine--regardless of colour to shape, it actually looks for like D. delicatium than D. honey. hmmm... weird... the honey seems to have a rounder and wider leaf, but both mine and the D.delicatium are very slender. mines are about 0.75" wide and about 6" long.

i guess now wat really would help the most is when it blooms. ok, assuming it is one of these couple of dends. how big do they need to be before they are of blooming size?

The plant should be blooming in one year (they mature the cane in less time than that)
